Posted:ok people
heres the deal
ive been working on fuel mixes for various properties-behaviors of the flame on the wick
heres what ive come up w\and it would be greatly appreaciated if you would post your mixes so that way i could find something better
all these burns have been on 4inch tubecore
monkyfists are better!

Citronella Oil (very smelly and smokey)
some people are allergic to citronella
about 7 min slow light

white gas (no smoke faint smell)
3 min EXPLOSIVE light

citronella to white gas
3:1 ratio (very sooty and smells to high heaven)
about a 6-10min burn (very quick light)

Ultra Pure lamp oil
5 min (slow-med light)

ultra pure to white gas 3:1
4 min hardly any smell or smoke (very quick light)

Multi Colored fire!!
OK this looks and sounds cool but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT!!! and people...dont try to blow w\this stuff...unless you want to DIE
no movement-standard yellow
spinning-green
isolation\stop\direction change-cloud of scarlet
laquer thinner-acetone-paint thinner- mineral spirits-1tbsp boric (ish)
4:2:2:1
hardly any smoke very very odd smell |DO NOT DO BUZZSAWS DURING OR AFTER A BURN YOU WILL GET A VERY HEAVY WIFF OF THE FUEL AND GET RATHER SICK!|
burn time : 4 min -ish it seems to be different every time i light em up

thats it for now ill keep you updated
People please respond w\mix ratios!!
i might be able to come up w\ a 15min burn or better!!

Posted:ooooh oooh!!! i found the perfect mix for green flame
and its cheap too!!!
ok...go out and buy a gallon of denatured alcohol
you can get it at places like home depot and lowes
add about......meh i put in about a 1\4 of a cup of boric...overkill i know but just making sure!
anyways....there u go
its a warm...pastel sort of green
very very nice
doesnt burn very hot and a good light
but.....theres a catch, you cant leave you fuel exposed to air because it absorbs the h2o molecules out of the air and dilutes your fuel....its a bad thing....
more to come....

Posted:My local airport says:
Airport Services
Fuel available: 100LL
FUEL AVAILABLE 24 HRS VIA SELF-SERVE CREDIT CARD PUMP.

What's 100LL?? Is it good to burn? Odd, We practice right at the edge of the runway there every week!
