Gave up after a while as once I went totally deaf for about 1/2 an hour - that scared me - didn't help I was indoors at the time!!!
I always found acetylene better for a scare factor
50/50 mix with air , and the bang factor was immense, plus it was surprisingly volatile, so much so that after mixing a 250ml bottle, and stabbing a flash hole in it with an awl ,. it went off in me hands once

Ahh those were the days .. the exuberence of youth
