...Also, it should be noted that the standard testing procedure requires fuel specimen to be placed in between metallic strips, however it was shown in [26] that in case the fuel is allowed to burn along the edges the LOI values can get affected drastically and even reverse the trend between 0ge and 1ge reported here....
