Thanks, ,

is magnesium not also quite volatile? I presume this is resolved with the alloy.

One day long ago, a sorcerer and a warrior did battle, as such things were commonplace in that age. Sometimes the sorcerer won, and the sum value of human abilities was improved some trifling amount. Sometimes the warrior won, and again the human race improved by some insignificant amount, for a sorcerer who can't defeat one miserable warrior is a poor sorcerer indeed.

Not so! VW magnesium engine cases will burn nicely.
