To the illustriuos LLGs,

What brand of torch fuel has worked the best for you.

I have used Blazer, Vector, Colibri, King, Prometheus, & Ronson to name a few.

I have always used brand specific fuel in my lighters. I currently use a S.T. Dupont Extend lighter and use Dupont Extend fuel. I did fill up during the SoCal herf from one of the many cans of Lava fuel that Poker had placed around, did not have a problem and noticed many others using it. Lava seem sgreat for the money although I don't know the long term effects. Maybe Poker can elaborate.

Lava is all I use. Some of the torches I have that I gave up on and have collected over the years all seem to work now with Lava (no kidding)!

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I use only Colibri fuel in my Extend with no problems. For my other lighters, I've run the gamut. Vector has worked the best so far, but I forgot all about Lava and will give it a try. Thanks Poker.

I've used Lava and Vector, both with good luck, although I liked Lava more.
There's also a new Blazer brand (or it could be old, but I just recently acquired a can) and it's worked well for me.

I use Vector in my Trifecta and (knocking on wood) haven't had a problem. I've had the lighter for about 1.5 years so far.
Really thinking of getting a DuPont Extend though.

FYI

I found out the JR Cigars is well stocked with Lava Butane fuel.
Problem is that they can't ship it to customers due to it being considered a hazardous substance.
BUT, if you live within driving distance of one of their E. Coast stores, you can buy a can for $3.50.

P.S. Maybe someone can arrange a group buy if we can find a way to ship it cheaply.

MoTheMan,

Great research! If JR has it, I'm sure we can find a way to get it shipped. Thanks.
