My foggers are Rosco and cost a couple grand apiece. They last forever if you use their fluid and clean after use. They clog up and fail if you use many of the other available fluids.
For me, it's false economy to try to use anything but the correct stuff. In fact, if I were using a cheaper DJ style fogger, I'd use the more expensive Rosco fluid just to try to avoid clogging issues.
The formulas are not that simple, as they have light fogs, heavy fogs, fogs that, while initially very thick, dissipate quickly, and others that last a really long time. Definitely not just a single ingredient mixed with water.
Whatever you do, keep in mind that you are spewing it out onto your band, your equipment, and your audience. I wouldn't mess with anything without being absolutely CERTAIN that the result was non-toxic and not detrimental to instruments and electronics.
Edit: Looked at the Rosco MSDS. Their fluid contains 3 different types of glycol formulations - zero glycerin.
