Lamp Oils

Lamp oil is another great option to power your BriteLyt lantern. Worldwide lamp oil has differing definitions however. If you are using lamp oil in the USA often times it will contain paraffin wax. If you are using a lamp oil with wax as an ingredient it is recommended that you dilute the mixture with a more volatile fuel. (See Operating Guidelines)
