How do I refill a garden torch?
Garden torches are made to utilize certain fuel kinds, and on Kulina, our products typically use three common fuel types.
- Kerosene oil
Kerosene oil is a conventional fuel option used to power garden torches. Kerosine oil is appropriate for outdoor lighting because it burns steadily and produces a flame that lasts for a long period of time.
- Flammable gel
Another fuel choice for garden torches is flammable gel. It usually takes the form of a gel-like substance that is put into the torch reservoir. This gel fuel is made to burn extensively and to give off a steady flame.
- Paraffin oil
Paraffin oil, commonly referred to as lamp oil or liquid paraffin, is another widely used fuel for garden torches because it burns cleanly and produces little smoke. It is a petroleum-based liquid fuel that is clear, odourless, and low in viscosity.
Please note that for optimal performance and safety of your garden torches, it's crucial to read the manufacturer's instructions or recommendations regarding the appropriate fuel to use for your torch model.
