“While we wait, a Boring Company employee comes over with a demo flamethrower to show us how they’re used: first, you open the valve connected to the propane tank – the standard 14.1oz tank you can buy at a hardware store – to turn the gas on. This is also how you control the strength of the flame. Then, once you have the gas going, you press the ignition switch near the front of the gun to light the flame; that should create the pilot flame. Then, pull the trigger to shoot the fire farther,” reports The Verge.
