Thereof, what can I use instead of tiki torch fuel?
To solve this problem, make your own tiki torches and use vegetable oil, along with some bug-repelling additives, to ward off bugs at your next outdoor party or camping trip. You can also substitute olive oil for vegetable oil, if you prefer.
Also, what is tiki torch fluid made of? A simple oil lamp fuel made from isopropyl alcohol and distilled water will burn in a tiki torch. Pure olive oil or coconut oil will burn clean in a tiki torch and do not require mixing.
Then, what kind of oil can you use for tiki torches?
Tiki torches can be fueled with paraffin oil (also known as kerosene), citronella oil, or a combination of both. Kerosene, or paraffin, oil is ideal for tiki torch use because of its long burn time and minimal scent.
Is tiki torch fuel the same as kerosene?
Kerosene is not usually recommended as tiki torch fuel for indoor use as it produces an unpleasant odor, and may become poisonous in non-ventilated areas. Kerosene will smoke, leave soot residue and not last as long as citronella tiki torch oil or paraffin oil.
