Oil Lamp Guide
Only use "lamp oil" as a fuel source. Other oil types can cause fires and/or damage oil burners.
Leave at least a ½ inch of head-space when filling up your oil lamp.
Keep lamp reservoir half full so that wick stays properly saturated
Oil lamps burn approximately ½ ounce of lamp oil per hour.
Trim off charred edge of wick after every couple uses. If charred residue is not kept trimmed, wick will likely smoke and provide dim light.
Replace lamp chimney once lamp is lit to protect flame from drafts.
Caution: A burning oil lamp should not be left unattended. Lamps should be placed out of the reach of children.
