    I assume you mean on a flight, rather than a bus or train?

No you cannot, not as checked (or carry on if it's more than 100ml).

From TSA's Prohibited Items page:

When hovering over the Carry-on, you get the following note:

(Less than 3.4 oz / 100 ml allowed)

Anyway, other organizations (including IATA) suggest similar policies as well, you can safely say this is a worldwide policy.

    +1 for the answer. I would add that good sense tells to avoid carrying extremely flammable products in a plane, isn't it? :)

    @Olielo true, but not in all cases, I have seen cases where you start wondering about it... like when a passenger tried to bring gasoline with him in his carry-on and the reason was: it's cheaper here than back home.. May 6, 2016 at 13:55
