have used Kero for indoor performances, but it was a large venue, so plenty of room for smoke etc.
Have also used Pegasol, which is a nice clean burning hydrocarbon we can get here in Oz and NZ. If you do some research with petrochemical companies you may be able to find a similar, clean burning long chain hydrocarbon that they sell that does not have a flash point that is too low. Pure lamp oil is also good...but more expensive. I have had a friend who used rose scented lamp oil...which burned almost the same, but did at least smell nice!! It was not her original plan, the rose lamp oil was all she could find, but it did work fine!!
Just one other note...watch what surface you are on. There have been threads on this recently, but you will spin fuel onto the floor and it is likely to get rather slippery!!
Oh and where Pele and I are talking Lamp oil, substitute parrafin and it is likely that we are talking the same stuff (not sure for Sth Africa)
As for two set of poi...I am forever dipping my poi in different fuels. I think that after one or two burns of the new fuel, most of any other fuel will have been burnt off and you will be left with the new fuel.
