Flame Gun

How effective are these things against weeds? Does it take a lot of roasting to be effective?

They're not very effective as they can't kill the root system. They're also expensive to run.

I was thinking to see if it will run on glycerol. We've got gallons of it.

Not my personal experience, but a friend of mine uses a white line painting gun thingy, rather than the weed burning tool, as it is more effective.

Don't know how easy they are to come across tho.

Was thinking that, but don't know where to buy just a couple of gallons.

I think it is a significantly lighter fraction than diesel. I've tried it on bio-diesel without much success.
