Yea, cause as the pressure goes up, the density will go up, and that means the ignitor will have to ionize more air inorder to make a spark. You may want to do a flyback, or induction coil. Nice gun though.

Hmm, no ignition at any mix, and I am getting spark.
I have adjusted the mix and it still won't fire.
Wow.
What a pain in the ass

How big is your spark? Sounds like you may need something stronger.

I highly doubt the spark is the issue.

Did you do a fluid volume measurement on both the meter and the chamber, and are you sure your pressure gauges are accurate?

I did a fluid of my chamber but my meter is too small to measure accurately and my chamber may be off too.
I probably will look into finding a beaker of some type.
All my gauges are from mcmaster which have a +/-1-2% accuracy I believe.
