Posted:I got this Lamplight Farms Pure Lamp Oil. The burn went through pretty nicely, but I had to use about half the quart for 1 burn! Is this normal?

How long must it be soaked before lighting? God this is so confusing. I should just switch back to Ronsonol.

Posted:i dont know what a quart is but im assuming its a fair bit. from my experiences with lamp oils ive found i go through about the same amount of fuel as i do when i use kero. it seems strange that it would use a large quantity of fuel maybe there was a small hole in the container?

was it the first burn of the twirly toy? on a totally unrelated note are u mixing shellite with your lamp oil? its worth looking into

you basically want to soak until the bubbles stop coming out of the wick

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
