I don't even know if all the additions will work so pouring extra money into it on a cannon that is purely a testbed is pretty stupid to me. Maybe on the next one I make if this one proves successful, but not for me on this one. Too many unknowns for me.

There's nothing really professional about it, common plumbing parts and well thought out. A metering system like this can be the fueling basis for all the combustion cannons that you build, experimental or otherwise.

He implied that this is not his first cannon and was primarily asking about gasoline as fuel on his next cannon. He was properly steered away from gasoline.

Yep, S&Ps are fun for a while.

Haha trust me, my designs have come a long way from my first one about 3 years ago. Then it was a 2 qt water bottle with the top cut off and a hole in the side and the cap duct taped to the hole and a paper towel roll connected to the opening. Obviously not the best as I lost most of the hair on my hand, so I've been pretty safe with recent builds. Just doing some overall research on some stuff before I kick this build off.
