actually pressure can vary significantly regardless of ambient temperature. Check yo gas laws B. I'd also like to be able to keep a consistent pressure, preferably regulated to 60psi since propane will generally stay between 60-90psi. Although I have long since transcended the use of propane for any...

liquid propane from torch bottles?

Can you turn one of the blue bernzomatic bottles upside down and get liquid propane from it? Where can I get fittings for these types of bottles? What about adjustable pressure regulators?

I definitely want to buy one of these injectors! When I get my TP180 mounted to my pocketbike, I want it to perform perfectly. I finally have some time to get back to work on that project and i think this injector should compliment a water injection system nicely.

DO NOT pierce it if it is pressurized or you plan to ever pressurize it again! don't try to drill the bottle and thread in some fitting. If you rupture a helium tank it will (depending on pressure) create supersonic shrapnel!

Is it legal to make sugar rockets in Georgia (US)?

I'm 16 and was thinking about finally making a KNSU motor since I'll be getting a lathe soon, but I don't have any kind of rocketry license or anything of that kind. If I make a rocket motor (J-L impulse) will it be illegal?? If it is illegal, I have a friend who is an NRA L3c, which is the highest ...

Can you have a "carbureted" ramjet???

I've been rekindling the idea of making one of those cool pulsejet RC planes and was wondering if a ramjet could be added to one without requiring a fuel pump.

re: Question about Thermojet - liquid fuel in models

one of the major "problems" is trying to carburate (not using a fuel pump) a valveless. I think someone did it once. anyone have that link???
