      As needed, usually during daily use one filling lasts for 5-7 days.

      Fill up a little :) Well, of course "over the edge" is not necessary, but visually that it was clear that the entire cotton completely soaked with gasoline. About 5 full "zilch" from a cylinder.

    And by my count, accurately enough to fill it is: full jet (all, I hope, understand how it is - a downward slope and a little squeeze bottle) to hold 4 seconds - and just poluchittsya week. I smoke, so exploiting the time, enough for a week, and, regardless of the gap between the cover and the housing. :)
