Im sure it will be fine, im sure its all the same stuff just a different name.

Some people claim Zippo lighter fuel is better quality, i,e burns longer and cleaner, I wouldn't imagine any great difference.

thnks but i was thinking it not might be a good idea,like zippo recommend their own brand only and that other brand stinks or may be more dangerous etc etc.

lol off course they do, thats how they make there money. Zippo wouldn't recommend another brand would they

lol....its cheap in summer so i will pay less rather then buying in winter for double the price

Meths works fine in my battered old handwarmer, Slight scent of meths but who cares out in the open air while fishing. 5 litres of meths costs about £7 5 litres of zippo will cost you at least £50

Oh, I just rob the tramps of all their valuables and boot them into the river, lol
