Posted:Dude, it's been covered SOOOOO many times. I've posted endlessly (as I tend to do) about this topic. There's a FAQ on it in the A-Z search. Please do a search (the little "search" button above these posts) for "colored flames" or "coloured flames" depending on which side of the street you drive on...Good luck, and welcome.(Moderators owe me another nickel)

Well, shall we go?
