If you look at the Inventors corner thread you will see I'm trying to get a penny stove(?) that i made that runs and burns extremely well on methylated spirits to run on paraffin due to lower cost and availability of it. I had it burning on paraffin today but it still needs a lot of tweaking to up the pressure.
If i can get it to burn as well (or better) on paraffin than meths (by changing the jet size and preheat system as its a pig to start) i will be able to open the doors to diesel too i think which would be great!
If i remember correctly on the primus omnifuel stove the diesel and paraffin can be burned with the same jet so i dont think there is a reason why i cant burn them with the same jet hole size on my penny stoves.
I just need to compare figures though so could someone give me the Flash-points and Fire-points for both diesel and paraffin (and meths if you know it).
