Those measurements would be if it held completely square. By the time they're heaped and stretched you get more in.

That's why I have built a solid bagging box out of timber and angle iron, mounted on a pallet so I can move it around easily. Stick the bag in it, fill it up, fork it out and job done. 

The box does the measuring, the bag is just for transport. 

Let's me give consistent measures and reuse the bags until they are knackered!.

The speed at which is burns is largely down to air control. Keep ontop of that, and it burns more slowly than some hardwoods. 

2022 Eco design stoves have a very limited amount of air control by and large,   getting them to burn clean means not letting the slumber.   But the new generation Charnwood BLU wood burne models are superb in this aspect,  pretty well closed down and minimal emissions.  Got one live in my showroom.

I heard 5" was pretty average - I mean some people say you need 8", but that's a fallacy! 😄

Almost all Eco Design compliant stoves at 5kw or below are fitted with 5"exits,  if also approved to use within a smoke control area,  ( pretty well all that I am aware of are) then we always use a 5" liner.  Stoveis cleaner burning so flue cant get blocked unless severely ill treated, air flow is faster in the smaller diameter pipe so pull is better. Win win situation,

My defra approved  smokeless area ( nominally 5KW but punts out 8KW at full chat )  stove  has a 6" flue .  No problems with draw either . It pulls like a train .
