locked Re: Southern Lantern Fuel


 

Lamp oil is the way to go. 

Do you have a pic of the lantern?

What model and make is it?

I use regular lamp oil in my lanterns, not kerosene.

Subject: [SouthernRailway] Southern Lantern Fuel

I was lucky enough to buy a Southern Lantern which appears to have never been used (maybe it is a reproduction?) and would like to light it.

It is stamped with "Use Only Long Lasting Oil".

What is the correct fuel to use?  I was thinking kerosene but now not so sure.

Thanks,
