This gave me a lot of trouble. After going through the level three times, carefully burning, and keep burning all the spiders in my path, I decided to try something different on my 4th run.

Instead of burning as you go, WAIT until you reach the end of the level. Use the shotgun, out run the spiders and collect as many gas units as you can (don't forget to look up, some are up high on shelves). I had 600 units total at the last checkpoint. Once you turn on the power and turn the switch to open the door at the top the of missile is where you get the checkpoint. Hit the lever on the blue-lit console and STAY IN THAT ROOM. Find yourself a nice corner and start burning. If you go out to the missile, the burning spiders will drop down to the level below and won't count. As far as I can tell, the only spiders that count are the one's that explode into flames. The spiders ARE NOT unending, they will stop after a while, but it should be enough to get the achievement. If you don't get it, simply reload the checkpoint. Now you don't have to replay the level.

TL;DR version: Wait until the last checkpoint before using any gas. Hit the switch for the elevator, stay in the room, turn off the headlamp and burn away. If you don't get the achievement, reload checkpoint.
