Available with Citronella Oil as a Mosquito Repellent or Scented with Eucalyptus Oil
The base fuel is virtually odorless. The fuel is available pure or we add Essential Citronella Oil to repel mosquitos or enjoy the fresh Eucalyptus sent out of the bottle. When burning, the eucalyptus scent is very, very subtle.
Performance Considerations for Using in a Tiki Torch
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. Be sure to use high-quality, fiberglass tiki torch wicks.
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 or at least dry it out and then soak in Firefly Fuel. You must also empty the torch reservoirs to insure our tiki torch fuel is not mixed with whatever fuel you have been using as the performance will be compromised.
About Our Lamp Oil Packaging
Finally, here are other considerations that may be of interest. Our plastic bottles are recylable. Firefly Fuels use commercial-style bottles and our 32-ounce and 128-ounce bottles use childproof caps. Additionally, there are NO inactive ingredients, such as colorants, which reduce purity.
And, what about potential leakage during shipping We electronically seal our bottles to prevent leakage and our packaging has been tested and approved by FedEx to ensure the product gets to you in tip-top shape.
Consequently, we have very little damage.
