Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by james3751 Excellent kerosene heater and lamp fuel substitute!
This product is excellent for kerosene heaters or lamps. It gives off virtually no odor when burning. It is better than the 1-K kerosene which up till now was the best you could buy for your lamps or heaters.. Klean Heat burns clean, makes your wicks last longer and has less odor than the 1-K kerosene. The price of the Klean Heat is very competitive with the 1-k kerosene. I have read reviews where some say that Klean Heat has an odor, I don’t believe this to be the fault of the product, but a problem with a to rich or to lean adjustment on the burning wick or a wick that needs trimming or some other operational problem. I have used Klean Heat in my Aladdin Lamps and my Aladdin Blue Flame heaters without a noticeable odor. It is just a great product.

Cleaner burning than kerosene, less odor, indefinite shelf life if stored properly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveinMD Good kerosene substitute
I've used this for a few years when emergencies arise, such as power outages or times when the furnace is down for repair. It is not true that there is NO smell, but there is only a little and it is much better than any kerosene I've been able to find. It's burn time is roughly the same as kerosene as well. I always keep a few gallons around for emergencies. I don't know what the max.shelf life is, but I have been able to keep and use unopened bottles from one winter to the next.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UncleLumpy Excellent for oil lamps, especially my Aladdin mantle lamps.
I repair and restore oil lamps, be they flat wick, tubular (round) wick or mantle lamps like ALADDIN lamps.
All perform better with this oil, and the odor is so small as to be negligible. Make sure to leave at least 1/2 inch of headspace in the font when filling, as any oil expands when it warms.
I particularly like it's clean-burning properties.
I discovered Klean-Heat when a friend moved and left me four gallons...I started using it in oil lamps, and have not looked back>
It is also competitively priced with liquid paraffin, as I've seen a 3 liter (3 qt. 4 oz.) container for as much as $18 within the last few days.
It is stable for as long as it's in the original container, or properly stored in a kerosene (blue color) container.
DO NOT store the oil in the lamps if you can prevent it, as any oil will give off volatiles over time, decreasing it's burnability. Instead, keep the oil safely stored, with a funnel and paper towels to hand for cleanup.
IMMEDIATELY after wiping up any spills, move the oily rags/towels outside to a METAL container in case of fire.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flashlightdoctor Took some work to get HD to sell me some but worth it.
I use this for oil lamps. It is about half as expensive as other "clean oil" but as far as I can tell just as good. My local HD store did not put these out for sale so I had to ask several people to get it for me that resulted in 3 trips to the store. I eventually figured out that it was better to order it on line and then pick it up after they found out where it was being kept. It is sometimes advertised as being a "gallon" but it is 120oz, 8oz short of a gallon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judd Virtually Odorless, but Expensive
I have used Klean Heat for several years. It isn't really absolutely odorless; it does have a slight odor. (My wife has the gift of outstanding sense of smell -- she says she can detect some, slight odor. I can not detect any odor.) It has a long shelf life. We use it exclusively for lamps and lanterns when the power goes out. We would not use any other product. The ONLY down side is the expense. At over $11.00 a gallon, it's not cheap. But, when the lights go out, it's dependable, so who's counting?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Best oil lamp fuel ever
I use this for all my oil lamps, at home as well as the cabin on my hunting land. The smell is NOTHING compared to K2 kerosene. It seems to last longer and burn brighter as well. I can get a higher flame before the lamp starts to smoke the place up too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simdude Pricey but worth it
I used this during the power outage in CT last month and it worked great. It wasn't completely odorless as there was a slight smell during startup and shutdown but it was 10x better than kerosene. I'm not sure what the shelf life is but I plan to always have at least a couple gallons in the house for emergencies.
