yes, i have.
there's still a copy of the wicked Pepsi G around here somewhere.
it's very slow to bloom and won't even light with less than 3/4 ounce of fuel.

I bet if you use a primer pan it would bloom very quickly. ;)

Is that why you send out those aluminum ash trays with your stoves; to dispose of those ear throbbers? :lol:

i did boil tests on three more stoves today.

all with .0315 jets.

Bloom - Boil - Flame Out

24 jets:
1:08 - 7:44 - 7:45

12 jets:
0:52 - 7:01 - 7:33

6 jets
0:58 - 7:58 - 9:03

after all my testing is completed i'll put all the results in one post in an arrangement that will be easier to understand than having all the info litterred throughout a bunch of posts.

The 12 jet looks the best

yes, for this jet size.

i'm going to hold off on makeing any assumptions untill i've finished the last two rounds of testing, and had some time to study the results.
