>>tc., it is stunning what a really large grossly inefficient fusion reactor can do. I never thought of my little simple fusor as working at a million times the efficiency of the Sun per unit volume. I'll have to quote that.

per unit weight... not volume.. The sun also has the advantage of much greater densities, particularly in the middle, which helps the reaction rates.
