Posted:Hi all, i am new (my name is ben.... HI!! smile ) and have been using HoP for staff lessons for a while... but for some reason i have never joined the forums frown . Im about to light up my staff for the first time- but im not sure what fuels to use (yes i have looked at all the topics on fuels biggrin ). I have narrowed it down to two different types... Kerosene or White Gas (the MSDS for it says white spirit... so i hope its the same thing! rolleyes ), however i cannot make any sense of the MSDS. It seems to me that all kerosene is toxic- so how do i know mine is a safe brand (same goes for white gas).

Can anyone tell me which of these My Kerosene or My White Gas is the best- or if they are both unsuitable.

Thanks for your help hug and hopefully soon i can finally light my staff weavesmiley

Posted:Being toxic? as long as your not drinking the stuff I wouldn't worry.

So I would say use either, I've never used white gas, so I can't vouch for how good it is.

Good luck lighting the staff.

Posted:Enjoy!...

Don't forget a wet towel for putting out your wicks (helps preserve them too), some one to spot you too! safety is most important.

Posted:I've had nothing but good luck with white gas, so I've never tried anything else. Bummer though is that when I started spinning I could buy a gallon for $3.25 and now I can't find it cheaper than $7.50
