    Last night I had the first opportunity to use my Austramax 'in anger'!
    There was a power outage. The lamp went reasonably well, but at one stage it went pop - pop - pop for a while.
    It seemed to clear when I pumped it. Any ideas? Was it getting low on pressure? Also (and this seems a silly question...) How do I know how to fill it to max?
    Should I test fill it until it overflows then , pour it out and measure this quantity and put a little less back in? Or what?

    Julian, full is 1 Imp Pint (570ml). I usually work on full being 500ml.

    Yes, it was running out of pressure thus running low on fuel in the vapouriser.

    Yes I've got some measuring pots organised now, I'm going for 400ml initially. THX Martin.
