    Your fuel experience

    Can you post fuel experience, how it worked ? maybe we could list good fuels to use with Xikar lighters.
    I'm part referring to the Xikar Executive Lighter - Question thread.

    Re: Your fuel experience

    Have been using, so far, Ronson Multi-Fill. I don't recommend it, although I haven't had any clogs yet.

    Learned that the owner of a good B&M hereabouts has advised his jet-flame lighter carrying regulars to use triply-filtered butane. Sure enough, after a couple of weeks, a clogged lighter becomes unclogged, merely by changing fuel.

    I saw some 5x-filtered butane with a Buy Now price of about $2/can - and these were big 7oz or 10oz cans as I recall.

    Have switched from (thanks in large part to TSA vigilance being a bit more stout in Oakland than at LAX) Colibris, which I never liked, to Ronson Jet-Fire lighters and love 'em. However, once I'm done with the aforementioned Ronson fuel, it's going to be 3x- or 5x-filtered butane for me.

    Haven't put anything but Ronsonol into the Zippo-lookalikes (Windii) - same yellow-blue flame, same wick/flint/fluid maintenance merriment - nothing new to report there. I use them as carry-on backups in case I forget to not travel with the torch lighters.

    Many of us have had very good luck with Vector fuel. It is multi-filtered and is readily available from b&m's and also from Williams Sonoma stores. Have never had a lighter problem after switching. Lava has also gotten good reviews although it is difficult to find.

    i just bought a blazer pb-207 lighter and a can of Promethius butane which they stock. I'm not sure if this is good stuff or not, it doesnt give much info on the label.

    Vector or Lava, I use nothing else. Have Blazers going on 2 1/2 years without any issues using Vector.

    PB 207 and Xikar fuel as of yesterday due to this thread and Corona only selling Xikar and Vector. Ronson before that and never a problem in over a year of nonstop use.

    Re: Your fuel experience

    i started to have problems with the ronson butane.....brand new lighters wouldnt light.

    off i went to the B&M and got some lucerine triple refined and now they are all working great.

    moral of the story......make sure it say triple refined at least on the can
    i will take (insert another word for refuge here) wherever i can find it

    Vector in all of mine has produced no problems over the years in my lighters even makes the cheap ones I lose all over the place work well
