Its ridiculous. either its the Colibri butane contaminants, leftover butane itself or it's just simply because by the time I get it, its been soaking in solvent for a day, or multiple days so there is only so much I can remove after the fact. Reiterates the importance of doing it yourself.
    Yeah man I feel you on that. He's gone through about 6 cans now all the same. Thought it might just be him or something but the side-by-side with vector was a tell. He tried overpurging, also full on nuking the taste out completely with heat, still seemed to have a chemical funk about the taste.
    Kinda worrying. Hope Colibri haven't gone to the dogs!

    Great list Sky thanks for all your hard work dude. Valuable info.
    So are Ronson/Zippo/Clipper x7 all viable candidates? Heard they're choc full of mercaps but that was a while back has it changed? Or was it purely misinformation? Would be handy as Ronson/Zippo is plentiful here.

    "So are Ronson/Zippo/Clipper x7 all viable candidates?" You left out Neon 5X... ;-)

    I have several cans of Ronson and Zippo, a case of Clipper 7X, and a couple of cases of Neon 5X for my own extractions. I'm not totally sure how I'm going to use up the dirtier butane I've accumulated, maybe BHO for oral use.

    My list ^^^ is as close to 'word' as I can get it.

    Lotus had 0.002g of residue

    Lotus, England, 400ml/13.4oz/222g can, reads on the bottom "DOM 03.10.12 14:03"

    Clean, clear, and sweet.


    The results will be added to the residue test results post,

    Clipper also has a 12 or 13x out. I saw it at one of my head shops around town. Any access to that Sky?

    Get me a link and I'll buy, I'd prefer to order just a can or two. The regular Clipper I tested came via Canada, is there a USA distributor?

    Capital N-butane #1 had 0.008g of residue

    Capital N-butane, USA, 6.6oz/187g can, reads on the bottom "13337"


    Capital N-butane #2 had 0.009g of residue

    Capital N-butane, USA, 6.6oz/187g can, reads on the bottom "13337"



    "MYSTERY OIL CONTROVERSY

    ***Our n-Butane supplier(right here in the United States) had given us their assurance our product would not contain any "Mystery Oil." After personally running two different tests, one open loop @ 12 total cans dispensed, and a second test in a closed loop system with 20 cans dispensed, we found NO TRACES OF ANY RESIDUE OR OIL!"

    Didn't have high hopes to be honest. SkyHighLer, please remind me about your procedure for testing a single can.
