all right, that was no sense ! i have no idea where you can find lamp fuel in the USA... i know a few cheap places here, but the plane ticket to Paris may cost you a fortune

Posted:Walmart/Target type places will probably keep citronella oil all year. They'll also stock Coleman fuel. I've also seen citronella oil at Home Depot. There's a local chain of hunting/fishing/camping stores that stocks lamp oil also.I get my lamp oil at a really good neighborhood hardware store. If you've got a neighborhood-store type of business, they might be willing to stock what you ask for.

Posted:cassandra - Yeah, I think that no matter how cheap the fuel is, I'd have to buy a LOT before it would offset the cose of a plane ticket..

Posted:You can get Ultra pure lamp oil at any Pat Catan's craft center, or Micheal's craft stores, they usually have it a good price too. If you don't have any of those stores around I can ask my friends from the Dayton area where the next most likely places would be.

Nothing good ever comes from hanging out with normal people.

Posted:Kmart has coleman fuel with the camping supplies (read the whitegas post in the tech section) and lamp oil (next to the lamps). During the summer they carry torch fuel but alas that is seasonal.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Hello fellow Ohioan! Yeah check out the camping sections at Kmart or Walmart. If you wanna play an arm and a leg, seek out Cabela's, haha.

I'd say stock up when the camping season starts to come to an end.
