Kerosene is one of those things that just does not fit into my survival preps. Since I tend to think about long term survival plans, and kerosene will run out sooner or later, so how does all of that fit together? And then there are the hazard of using kerosene lanterns – fire hazard, health risk from fumes, glass breakage, storing kerosene,,,,. Because of all of this, I have decided to put kerosene into the short – mid term survival plans. In other words, kerosene would probably only be used for a couple of months – or until supplies run out.
Tag: Kerosene lanterns
A few things to consider:
Type and quality of the kerosene – clear, colored, scented
Size of reservoir on the lantern
Trimming the wick before use
Keep the lantern away from children
