What do you mean by burn strong? the brightest flame i have gotten is from white gas. But that also seemed to be a much more intense heat. Kerosene on the other hand has a darker colors flame, more orange then yellow, and its less intense. Right now im using a mix of about 60% white gas 40% kero and im really liking it.

With your poi you shoulda gotten a dvd called backyard spinner's guide to fire or something like that. Have her watch that and maybe talk to her about being your safety, depending on what you mean by shes afraid of fire.

here is the HoP guide to fuels:
