Default Reviving old tire glue?

Hey all, I went to glue up some tires and realized that the bottle of Losi Tire glue I have had dried out, leaving a sticky mollases type liquid that is no good for gluing tires.

Now I realise the simplest is to buy a new bottle (it's cheap), but I won't be able to get to my LHS for a while. So is there any way of diluting this stuff to get it back to the desired consistency, whitout negatively affecting the glues holding capacity? What would I use?

Or do I simply chuck it and wait for a new bottle?
Thanks in advance for your help!

What he said, I think it even says it on the bottle. Just checked and it does.

I'll tell ya what I use to glue tires, regular LocTite brand cyanoacrylate from the hardware store. Comes in a little triangle shaped bottle that's good for gluing 4-8 tires depending on how you use it. In other words, you'll use up most of the bottle mounting a whole set of tires & probably have only a little left for touch-ups or other projects, so you go through all of it before it has a chance to dry up inside the bottle.
