Posted:Nah, don't worry. I mix fuels alot. Sometimes even in the same day.

Some people use part kerocine and part lamp oil in the same dip.

Posted:This is a very good question! I debated over this for a while, experimenting, and learning as I went along.

Different fuels have different flashpionts. Oily fules, such as kerosine, and lamp oil take longer to light than the white gasses.

Many people try to find a comfortable flash point by mixing fuels; manny times in the fuel-container. I have not witnessed any disasters doing this, nor have I heard of any.

As always, practice caution whilst communing with fire. AND don't forget to have fun!
