When you say "Burns", what exactly do you mean? I would expect overheating and clear glass using either arsenic or antimony to flip valences if overheated leaving a sea of tiny bubbles released from the outer electron ring. Is that what happens?
The yellowing is interesting in that if it came from the glass, it should happen with any torch but that's not what I'm hearing you say. MAPP, as a dirty gas would cause yellowing. It certainly happened for me in Shanghai where WangKai would get cheap and use acetylene for the torches. That was not fun.

Charlie and I are in conversation about the issue. He did mention that the price was lowered on Dec 5th. Is anyone seeing that reflected in the retail price?
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
