UTFSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Use The Freakin Search Engine!)

Oh and seeing as your new I'll give yout he answer anyway: USE LESS FUEL. Spray in the tinyest tinyest amount of fuel then wave the gun around for a few seconds so most of the fuel escapes and then put the cap on and fire. You only need the most miniscule amount of fuel imaginable.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

You shouldn't need to clean the inside of the chamber. To get the right amount of fuel in the chamber you only have to squeeze the aerosol valve enough that some gas comes out, no deoderent liquid should come out, and its the liquid that messes up the gun.

If you still can't get it to fire, flood the chamber with gas (spray a decent bit of fuel in) and leave the cap off, and make sure the barrel is empty. wave the gun around while constantly clicking the sparker. It should eventually ignite and then you will have a better idea of how much fuel to use.

You don't find the fuel to air ratio. All that means is how much fuel is in the gun compared to the amount of air in the gun. Fuel needs air to burn, so if you have too much fuel in the chamber there won't be enough air for it to burn. Likewise, too little fuel and the gun won't fire. When I say 'flood the chamber with gas', all I mean is to spray too much fuel in so that there is not enough to ignite. The gas I am talking about is the pressurised gas that is in the aerosol can. It pushes the liquid out of the nozzle when the nozzle is pushed down.

The nozzle is that thing you push down with your finger. Use a mapp gas tank and a blow tourch, it comes out slower and is more powerful and much easyer to ignite.
