I am curious on the usual burn time and cycle times on a rocket mass heater.
I know no two are really alike but was wondering what the averages might be.
If you have a RMH could let me know how often you burn it and burn time.

I have the winter under belt with testing.  Its RMH... Your asking alot, I could talk alot but you know they are all different.

If fired everyday in eve, mine takes about 5 min for fire to self sustain without my influence and watch.  As long as I'm around every half hour or hour to feed it, it will go all night, and still warm 24 hrs later.

Usually it is burned everyday from 6-9 pm, with the exception of some 3 day breaks. 

Love the heat I get and the smaller amount of wood needed.
