Lamp Fuel

Most round wick lamps use Colzalene/Relighter Spirit.All spark ignition lamps use this type of fuel as does our SL Lamp.You can use Ronson or Zippo lighter fuel if you cannot get hold of Relighter Spirit.It is generally flat wick lamps such as our 1A Lamp which burn paraffin/kerosene or lamp oil. These are usually lamps which can be lit with a naked flame.

The Olympic Torch Relay lamps burn paraffin or kerosene.
