    lamp oil is a heavier fraction. I was tempted by the citronella flavour as well and spent 3 hours cleaning a stove for my sins

    As someone who has spent a good amount of time cleaning our only refinery here and been covered in all it's products, the best here seems to be the lightly dye stuff labeled Homebrand.
    Oh the 100ks of jet fuel/ kero ltrs we wasted cleaning bundles lol

    Cheers

    That doesn't look to shabby Garth. :thumbup: Should scrub up nicely, and a personal note adds to it's story.

    Nice stove, you'll have it making coffee and oatmeal in no time.

    Good on the honest person who delivered it to the proper receiver.
