i have a zippo and i tried lamp oil. it did not work. when you say paraffin, is that the same as kerosene?

Best Answer

Yeh it is kinda the same, did the lamp oil dry up?

hmm, i would first try white gas, which is coleman fuel for camp stoves and lanterns. i think this might work, but you may have to blend it with something heavier to make it last. it evaporates very quickly. i have found that nothing works better in my lighter than the name brand fuel made by zippo.
