Well, if you can build something that doesn't feature a warmed-up can with fuel inside.
But on the other hand, you are probably recreating the fuel systems the early engines used.
"The rotary-brush atomizer used by Marcus Siegfried was an integrated fuel reservoir and feed unit. As the pulley-driven brush revolved, it picked gas out of the reservoir and threw it into the air. The suction effect created by the pistons drew the mixture into the engine.
Lanchester's wick carburetor improved on the atomizer. It consisted of several compartments. The bottom compartment held fuel. Wicks extending from a compartment above became saturated with fuel.
Getting vapors given off by the wicks to mix with air was achieved by drawing air into the compartment above the fuel storage area. The fuel/air vapors then flowed to the engine, passing first through wire mesh that served to filter out impurities. This was the world's first carburetor fuel filter."
If you don't make any mistakes in your life,
life itself will be a f*ckup.
