It works but it's not worth the bother. If you were to do it, do it via a tube rather than straight in, to prevent tube scorching.
Twenty to get a 5m afloat.......smokeless of course.
Less effort and time but will affect your guarantee.
FYI 20 cartridges take up the same space as a compressed air bottle required to do the same job. But that is to just get afloat.

Foxes rock, we have 4 bantams in a run in the garden. The foxes have a go but don't have a chance.
My west London foxes are looked after and the bantams are safe.
It's the magpies that get it.
