    It’s the same old story, use it for the purpose it was made for and in the correct way.

    You’re okay burning any old shit in an MSR Whisperlite International but even then you should jet accordingly or it’ll be a miserable experience (DAMHIK)

    I once put some Nitro fuel designed for radio controlled cars into my Zippo for a laugh!

    Not only did it burn very weakly, I have failed to get a spark ever since trying to light it.
    I replaced the wick, flint, and even scrubbed the knurled wheel with soapy water - But whatever lubricant they add (I heard castor oil) has stopped any fire making friction.

    Send it back to Zippo and the chances are they’ll replace it for you.

    Well I got some of the purple methylated spirits yesterday, added a splash of water as advised and it worked a blooming treat!
    No smoke whatsoever and a nice clean, steady burn so thanks for the advice.

    It works on the same principal as water injection in Drag engines.
