Citronella oil sounds like a good idea. How does that compare to using Kerosene?
I love those Deitz lamps for the simple fact they can run off just about anything - from kero to citro to olive oil
The old school and heavy duty design and build is also a plus as well as the fact it recycles the fumes to re-burn them.. just a full proof bushcraft / heirloom item..
*(Now I'm going hunting to see where I can get one)
I do like the atmosphere of a hurricane lamp over the bright white light of a butane lamp when car camping. I bought a heap of the mini ones from thailand last time I was there, which are a good compromise and still give off a good amount of light.
I thought about getting one of these scaled down lamps, but feel compelled to persist with my 30 year old Candle Lantern, due to years of ridicule from "friends" who are obviously jealous (one told me that the CL isn't actually a "light." He suggested that it is actually a "dark.") Jealousy does awful things to people!
