Posted:jah - you pretty much need to dip the entire wick, if you want lots of fuel and flame. But if you don't want to be pouring 4 inches worth of fuel into a bucket everytime you want to have a burn, you just need to find a deep container, with a smallish diameter, and a wide opening on top.
If you go to Kathmandu (or any other camping shop) they have these solid plastic drinking containers which work well. $9.00 if you go during one of their half price sales.
hope that helps.

Posted:Or a really cheep alternative is to use a Woodstock(440mls) can, though if ur under-age it prolly isnt the best idea. Though is what i use u just have to cut very close to the top of the can then once u do that round the edge of the can cut down a few mm bout every half cm an then fold the parts down.... hope that makes sence.... that just makes a sorta saftey egde so u dont get the sharp part of the can. Admitedly it isnt the best option but some mates of mine use to have a drink b4 they twirled(not recomended due to saftey issues) but they would all ways have a can handy... the 375ml cans dont work to well unless u got the 2" wicks... which u dont do it dont matter....
Ne ways thinks that bout enough of my dribble

Posted:Old milo tins are good to use but most of the time, just for a quick burn it is best to use a 375ml can.
