One of the questions we are asked most often is which fuels can be used?
Medallion Lamp Oil by Lamplight Farms
Is a good general purpose oil for indoor and outdoor use in both oil lamps and lanterns. It has little or no odor, and can be found at your local Ace or True Value Hardware Store and other home centers. Do not confuse Medallion Lamp Oil with Ultra-Pure Candle Lamp Oil which is liquid paraffin.
Wal-Mart carries FloraSense brand lamp oil which is similar to Medallion Lamp Oil, and can be had for a reasonable price. Home Depot or Lowes carries Kleenheat brand synthetic kerosene which is an odorless fuel and can be used in all oil lamps and lanterns both indoors or out. This is a seasonal product in some stores, so you may have to stock up in the winter for use the rest of the year.
