Ideal wok height above the flame?

How high above the flame should I have my Wok/frying pan/etc? Is full blast always the hottest setting?

When I have my gas stove on full blast the flames push out around to the sides of the wok, and if I turn it down just a little they are more centered (but much smaller). Which is more efficient for cooking with a Wok?
Would it be better to rig up something to hold my Wok slightly higher up so the highest-setting flames don't get "smushed" around the sides of the Wok?
I have read a few conflicting things...
