we all know that getting the burner to "jet" is what gets us out cuppa. To this end, this afternoon my son and I put three burners to the test in the kitchen.
1. Army trangia burner (new)
2. Civvy trangia burner (well used)
3. Tatonka burner (used once only)
At half full the results looked something like this:
1. 4.5 minutes to jet
2. 35 seconds to jet
3. 1 minute and 5 seconds to jet
We then let them cool a bit put 15ml in each and did it again
1. in just over a minute
2. in under 10 seconds
3. a whisker slower than 2
Food for thought??
Fillling them up seemed to make matters worse and slow the times dramatically even on a warm burner.
