Burn time was about 57 min, with a slightly dimished flame near the end. I'm not sure what the fuel capacity is, I'll have to check.
I used a pipe cleaner (the abrasive kind) for a wick, about 1.5 times the length of the marker tube.
I haven't tried it under a pot yet, kinda doubt it's going to bring anything to a boil, but may be good for a warmer.

And I used this to fill it.

Thanks oops. Do you know if it will still seal with the cap on if you do that?

Oh, I'll need to build an extension tube like what's on the "007", and slighly flare the top so it won't fall into the tube. Or, maybe I should make the tube the full length of the marker so that there's no chance of it falling in.

This one was surely unique Ridgerunner. It was a fine entry and held our interest. Sean Connery would be proud to have one in his bag of 007 specialty items ;) Thanks for entering it.

Hey Ridgerunner,
I came across one of the markers at Winn-Dixie for $2.99. Didn't buy it yet, but probably will soon.
What's the max fuel capacity? Have you come up with any more refinements?

It will hold a couple ounces max. The problem with overfilling is leakage. That is why I have it laying at a slight angle on the pot support/windscreen. I've thought about removing the bottom so as gain full access to the fuel chamber. That way I would be able to line the inner wall with fuel absorbing material. I had no problem with leakage when using 1 ounce of fuel.
