Spilled bioethanol must be removed with an absorbent tissue and cleaned with water to prevent ignition outside the burner reservoir.
-The flame will light slowly at first. Please allow 15-20 minutes to reach the optimum temperature and flame height.
-The heat given off by the flames, is enough to heat an area of 20-40 squared meters and the energy produce can reach up to 4KW. The average consumption of bioethanol works out to an average of 4 hours / liter and can reach up to 6 hours / liter if the intensity of the flame is lowered.
Warning: Do not refill fuel box when it is hot or with flames. Before you lit the fuel box, Clean up the surface of it from biofuel.
Also the fuel should be stored at room temperature to facilitate its ignition. Fuel must be kept in safe distance to the fireplace.
