Question What kind of oil should I use in my lantern?
Jerri’s answer You want a sootless, smokeless, and odorless lamp oil that burns clean. This type of oil is safe to use indoors because it doesn’t give off dangerous gas and won’t leave a residue on room surfaces.
We recommend standard clear lamp oil (no dyes) or “Klean-Heat” Kerosene Substitute.
DO NOT USE PARAFFIN OIL, DIESEL, BIO-DIESEL OR OLIVE OIL!
These are not suitable substitutes for any of the approved fuels because they have a flash point of over 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
You can find lamp oil in places like Walmart or large home improvement stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot.
