Steve, I never tried to see how long the stove could burn with a full mag. The fire pot is not very deep so ash accumulates too fast to get very long burn times.
I made the mag to be able to top load the stove like with the VigII, very easy and clean to load from the top. The other reason for the mag was to have the anthracite warmer/hotter before reaching the burning area, so the recovery time is shorter.
Shake both grates every 12 hrs then load to the top.
I will not tell how much ant I put in the mag after each 12 hrs periods, almost unbelievable. Even for a so small room 10 X 16 Ft, the stove makes the heating job in a fantastic way. I never imaginated it could makes it on the low heat output like that. But the stove can heat much more if wanted.
The most important thing for a stove is to be able to controll it the way WE want to , low or high.
