Posted:I was wondering how much kerosene I should use each time i spin? I want to use a good amount so that I do not over burn the wicks, where the fire just consumes the fluid and that is it. Thanks!

Posted:I just submerge the wicks until they stop bubbling then let the excess drip of. Basically as much as can soak into your wicks.

Posted:short answer? NONE! kero is evil... shocked (no, seriously. there are better alternatives!)

but um, yeah, like stnd54 said - til they stop bubbling works smile the longer you soak, the longer you burn. first burn on fresh wick needs a longer soak though, just to make sure it gets through the whole wick grin

do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

smile! grin it confuses people!

Posted:"Kerosene" as in paraffin with volatile additives, bad.

"Kerosene" as in pure paraffin, good.

Pure white gas, epic but brief.
