Biodiesel is a clean-burning "green" alternative to kerosene

Biodiesel is a clean-burning "green" alternative to kerosene. Biodiesel packaged for lamp burning is best purchased, to avoid biodiesel / diesel mixtures available at the majority of filling stations' biodiesel pumps.

Citronella oil is used for its insect-repellant properties, and can be burned in wick lamps or torches outdoors. This is meant for outdoor use only and generally has a yellow color. To improve wick life and make citronella oil burn cleaner, it can be mixed 50:50 with kerosene.

Motor Kerosene or Tractor Vaporizing Oil, is very hard to find nowadays, although it can be found at some feed stores or near farming communities. This can be used, but may be expensive.

Sometimes dyes and fragrances are added to fuels, which can increase soot deposits on glass globes/chimneys, and reduce wick life. Some manufactures have even created special novelty formulations that will cause the flame to burn in different colors.
