Posted:I'm doing a new years gig, and I wanted to know what fuel I could use which would burn the longest.

I'm currently using citronella oil, which gives me about 2 minutes burn time, but i wanted to aim for more.

I don't really care about smoke, as i'm performin goutside - so long as it isn't toxic!

I know that fuel has been covered a lot, but I couldn't find a definite answer on the longest burning fuel.



Are you up for it??

Posted:I hate to say it but you probably wont find a definite answer to longest burning fuel as alot of it depends on how old the wicks are, have they been taken care of, etc etc

re-read the prior threads and make a good guess??

edit: I get 4 - 5 minutes from kero

Are you up for it?
