Hmm.. Expirement with the amount of fuel you spray in, thats usualy the problem. But just search the wiki and forums for answers before posting your question next time.

do you have any weight in the egg? if you dont make or find a wieght of some sort and out it in. i bet the problem is the egg is too light. but make sure its not too heavy.

oh and spedy the amount of fuel doesnt really matter. as long as he is putting enough for it to fire then its fine. and too much fuel will make it no fire. so as long as its firing with the amount of fuel you are using i wouldnt mess with it.
