More tinkering today. I was looking around for a suitable fuel container and had an old pump garden sprayer. If I let the fuel gravity feed, then it eventually splutters and the burner locks out, but if I pressurise the fuel tank, then it runs really well. I have taken a picture of the burner. It is crude, but it works. It uses about 2 litres an hour (or half a US gallon?). I have also turned the fuel pressure on the delivery pump back down to its original kerosene setting, as it works better this way with the pressurised fuel tank. I still think that once I have preheated the WVO, then I wont need to pressurise the fuel tank, as it will flow much easier,
