Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kerick913 hedge trimmer bar oiler
I bought it to soak my hedge trimmer bar between uses. Cut a piece of PVC or ABS pipe (about 3" diameter for my trimmer) and glue on a slip cap of the same size and material to one end. Mount pipe vertically to a wall with a hose clamp(s). Fill the pipe with kerosene (leave room for displacement). Insert the bar into the pipe to keep it oiled and clean. I have a screw above the pipe so I can pull the trimmer up and let it drain for a few days before using it again. The kerosene has a low odor and flammability.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lampcollector this is not really kerosene
Check out the MSDS on this. The flash point is too low to be considered safe for a wick-fed kerosene lamp or heater. It should be 124 degrees F minimum. This fuel is at roughly 100 degrees. It is mineral spirits. It can cause runaway flames, a dangerous condition, in a kerosene lantern. They are selling mineral spirits as kerosene which it is not. The Klean Heat substitute fuel which is also available at home depot is at 145 degrees flash point and would be a better, safer option.

Extremely easy to use and convenient! Zero smell! This will be the only way I will buy from now on.

Pour and play. Not much easier than that. Unless someone does it for you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ferris great alternative for using indoors
we switched from diesel to kerosene in our heaters to minimize fumes. Burns clean and is more expensive but worth the money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by EyeoftheTiger Took almost a month to get.
When product arrive I quickly returned as it was readily available, and in town at Lowes. Shipping time was insanely slow about 3 weeks. The shipping method needs serious improvements. This product is sold in Alamogordo, NM 267 miles away, and despite this the shipping originated in Memphis,TN. Makes no sense. And roughly Phoenix being the distribution spot for El Paso stores. If HD wants more online purchases they gotta speed up the shipping or forks will shop elsewhere where products and in stock or available quickly...a week max. Employees made my return process painless and were very pleasant.

Why do they put flammable liquids in a container that regardless of your posture or attempts, no matter what it spills all over the ground when you pour it? Highly frustrating. I even bought the worlds largest funnel to try to capture the spill but it seems to just want to travel down the face of the container to the floor. Highly irresponsible when the technology is there to do it better...just saying.
