Hi I know a Mamod one wick burner needs around 10mls of meths to use when steaming an engine. Would this be the same for a two wick Mamod burner. Very Happy

Fill the two wick burner until full. depends on which type of burner you refer to, pre-war two wicks were smaller than post war two-wick burners.
