To fill your tiki torch with tiki torch fuel, first unbolt the metal flame guard and wick from the fuel container. Fill fuel container with tiki torches citronella torch fuel only.

Follow the steps that come with your particular tiki torch, or if you donít have them follow these regular suggestions. Of course, be sure to follow the directions that come with your particular tiki lamp Ė different tiki torches may have different suggestions as to how to fill them.

1. Do not fill past line marked on bottle.
2. Never use gasoline, kerosene, or other inflammable fuel.
3. Screw flame guard and wick assembly back onto fuel container.
4. Do not over tighten.
5. Place bottle into torch.

Fill up your torch to the fill line (if there is no fill line, be sure to leave at least half an inch between the top of your tiki torch fuel and the top of the lamp). Screw the flame guard and wick back on. The above is just a general suggestion. However, one thing that is important to remember is to only use approved tiki torch fuel in your torches Ė never use kerosene, gasoline, or any other flammable material (unless recommended by the tiki torch manufacturer).

Tiki Torches Safety instructions:

Keep your fuel supply securely stored. When youíre actively using your tiki torches, fuel and flame will naturally be in close nearness. Absent that, keep flame safely away. Your jug of tiki torch oil should be stored in a cold, dry, well circulate air location. Donít keep it in your house. Similarly, if you own propane tiki torches keep your extra propane tanks outside, well away from your home and in a fresh or sheltered location.

Always put out your tiki torches when you expect them to be unattended for extended periods. Running inside to take another 6 pack for the cooler is all right. But if youíve said your farewells to your last guests and are planning to turn in, donít just leave your torches unattended to flame out. Not only is it a waste of tiki torch oil or propane, but an open and unattended flame is just an open and unattended invitation for tragedy.

Keep a chemical fire extinguisher handy. I consider a fire extinguisher a home safety necessary but it is entirely critical item to have on hand if you entertain with tiki torches. Donít rely on your faithful hose. Water will only spread tiki torch oil without extinguishing the flame and compound an already terrible condition. A chemical fire extinguisher is the only good alternative.

You can know about the different models of tiki torches available in the market at the Backyardbargain. It is a nice place to explore numerous models of outdoor torches and patio torches for your home or restaurant.
