A sign that you were a VERY good boy indeed. I wasn't.
I use an old gas cylinder with the top cut off (don't ask me about that) and a bit of paper as a wick so no fiddling near the fuel.
As air can't get at the petrol too well, it burns with a yellow smoky flame and takes quite a while to burn off.
Obviously it's VERY DANGEROUS and I wouldn't recommend that anyone REALLY do this at home...
Generally now I just dump any old mix into the Land Rover - it helps her pass the emissions test!
