Cold weather ignition

Unread postAuthor: Vagcannonmrk6 » Tue Feb 11, 2014 7:54 pm

I am having trouble with reliable ignition in cold weather. My cannon is a 20Lb propane tank sporting an eight foot barrel with welded spark plug ignition. Any cold weather gas recommendations would be great. I usually use right guard and oxygen. Thanks

Regardless of how you measure the fuel it takes longer for the fuel to mix when the temp is cold. A chamber fan overcomes that problem. If you don't have a fan then try waiting several minutes after fueling and see if the performance improves, if it does then mixing is the problem. If waiting doesn't help, the fuel mix is probably the problem.
