      Assume it's modern creosote, is it too thick to spray?
      White spirit would be the best for thinning it.

          My neigbour used one of those cuprinol manual sprayers for his fence. He also sprayed the side of my conservatory. Please be careful when spraying the top of the fence as the creosote can travel quite a distance :dbgrtmb:.
