Chanukah science...Which oil is the most miraculous?

In anticipation of Chanukah we investigated different oils and candles to see which one burns most efficiently.* We tested each oil or candle by measuring the mass before and after letting the wick burn for 3 minutes  We concluded that the one that lost the LEAST weight was the most efficient fuel source, and also the most miraculous.
