Independent Lab Tests & Inhouse Testing

We hired an outside lab to test the amount of smoke and soot that was emitted from our Firefly Tiki Fuel and common, big-box tiki torch fuel. We also ran our own in-house tests illustrating visual performance as well as burn times. The lab tests were done using specific ASTME standards and showed our fuel produced much less smoke than our competitor. The figures show our competitor produced 350% more smoke and soot than our tiki fuel. Keep in mind lab tests and our in-house tests were done with some specific controls, i.e., exact wick heights, new, uncontaminated wicks and uncontaminated fuel supply.

Tiki Torch Fuel Performance Considerations...

The two variables that affect results are contaminated wicks and wicks that are simply exposed too much. Your torch wastes fuel and smokes excessively when the wick is over exposed.

The wicks should not be exposed more than 1/4" to provide a nice flame. We keep ours flush with the collar. There are some torches that have poor wick collars that don't manage the flow of fuel up the wick properly and may require even lower wick heights.

Contaminated wicks are another culprit contributing to poor performance. If you leave your torches outside and uncovered, your wick is soaking up that lovely rain water. Additionally, if you change fuels, you need to change the wick too. You must also empty the torch reservoirs to insure our tiki torch fuel is not mixed with whatever fuel you have been using.

Our Tiki Torch Fuel is a True Alternative...

You own a great Tiki Torch and you need to use the best fuel that burns lean, doesn't soot up your beautiful torches, odorless, provides a nice flame and lasts a long time. Firefly Tiki Torch Fuel is pure, lasts, and works with all cotton wicks and fiberglass replacement wicks. We searched far and wide for a superior long-lasting formula that stays lit, even in inclement weather. And Firefly Pure Tiki Torch Fuel’s low-smoke, high-quality formula is free from unwanted additives.

Bugged by mosquitoes? Set a festive mood while you repel insects with Firefly’s Eucalyptus Tiki Torch Fuel. Our exclusive formula is infused with pure Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil, proven by the CDC to be as effective as DEET in repelling mosquitoes. And Lemon Eucalyptus smells great, with a strong, fresh, woodsy-citrusy scent.

We also offer the, ever popular, Citronella Tiki Torch Fuel that repels bugs from outdoor outings with the fresh, lemony scent of pure Citronella essential oil. Firefly Fuels are formulated right here in the USA!

BUT, if you want a new, eco-friendly product that by far is the most effective mosquito repellent, give our Safe & Green Fuel with Guardian a whirl. This is the BEST mosquito tiki torch fuel EVER. We're very serious about this. IT WORKS EVEN WHEN NOT LIT!
