The flame throwers i have seen use a hand choke,it takes a minute or so to get the fuel worked through the exhaust.I'm not sure how they fire the spark plug in the tailpipe,but when they do it will throw a 3 to 5ft flame.Now the guys that get serious use white gas,Coleman lantern fuel,in a pressurized container.When they get the fuel burning in the pipe they add the coleman fuel under pressure.I've seen a moving car leave a flame 50yds long and close to three stories high.Those guys usually lay a piece of fire retardent material across there trunklid.You can feel the heat from the flames in the upper rows of the grandstand at your county fairgrounds
