What is the oil/soap/gasoline ratio?
About 4 quarts of good old black used motor oil, 1-2 quarts of gasoline, 1 large bottle of dish soap. Use the cheap stuff, as it's all going to burn up anyway. If you want to get extra creative, mix the concoction and pour it, then add a half-gallon or so of white gas (Coleman Camp Fuel these days, but in the bad old days it was called white gas). The white gas is much more flammable than regular gasoline, and will produce a pillar of flame up to 30 feet high. Be a bit careful with this one, as you'll think you're far enough away, but you're not. I remember this one time we went camping, and Shotgun Bob (my younger brother) used it to start the camp fire. Everyone in the camp ground thought it was the Second Coming.
