Hey guys,

I have just moved to London from Australia and need to find the best fuel to use for my performances. I am a burlesque performer and only really do body burning and a little eating along with fire tassel twirling. I need something that burns relatively cool for the body burning and that doesn't produce tons of black smoke (ie kerosene). I have used kerosene here before and it has a nice temperature but it is just so dirty! I also tried lampoil but it burns far too hot for me.

In Australia I used a product called Recosol aka Shellite aka naptha https://www.recochem.com.au/index.php/pro...ol_r55_shellite

It appears to be similar to Coleman Fuel - does anyone have experience using this for body burning and how do you find it?

If you use something else what do you use and how does it work for you?

Thanks for any help!
