i just use naptha. it lights up real fast and burns real hot. i think it shortens the life on your poi too. i don't like kerosene. the smell is so overpowering and it's real sooty.

I've never seen a supernova blow up, but if it's anything like my old chevy nova it'll light up the night sky!

Naphtha, and I also echo the sentiment that it shortens the life of your poi too, especially if you're a fast spinner. Riz apparently has some info on this, and if he releases it, I'll post a link to it.

I have only used Tiki Torch Fuel. I would like to experiment with other fuels though. My brother informed me that different salts mixed in with your fuel mixture creates the different colored flames. Personally, I would like to know what mixture to use, or individual fuel, that will give me longer tails of fire or what is used to obtain the longest tails.

Stout i will, in the shop they also asked if i knew that this was not some kind of lamp oil, but real fuel. They also gave me a short breif about the flashpoit smile I'll take care.



Dedphrog i also wonderes about that, but guess i'll find out in a couple of days.

I use something called Parasene. A paraffin based kerosene fuel. Its burns really nice and isn't overtly noxious smelling. Plus at 4 for four litres its not to expensive.

i've not had any probs with the coleman -- but it's really sensitive to wind. which is why usually do a mix with ultrapure lamp oil (either a 2:1 or 1:1 mix)

i dont recommend mixing it with tiki torch fuel.. it really stinks when you light it up (cause of the tiki fuel) and the smell LINGERS on the poi too... i could still smell it a week later. got rid of it by doing a couple of short burns with pure colemans.

i'm thinking about trying to mix a few diff salts and use disposable wicks (terrycloth).

Kero. The smell has never bothered me either and I like it better than either lamp oil or Coleman's.
