View Full Version : Zippo style lighters
Anybody know how long the fluid should last after a fill up?
It seems like mine has to filled up alot. Is the fluid evaporating?
I'm filling it more than I'm lighting it!

First of all, you stated "Zippo style". Not an actual Zippo. That's your problem.
A real Zippo has always outperformed a knock-off for me. It shouldn't be leaking, evaporating, or draining. Filling it once a week for a regular smoker would be normal. A heavy 2-pack-a-day smoker, filling it every 4 days.

Do you put the lighter in your pants pocket? does it burn your leg? Yea, it's leaking.. :D

depends on how much you're using it v. how much you fill it w/ ronsonol
IME, it's been about 3-4 days with my trusty Zippo. but i don't fill it up to the tippy top. only a little bit at a time.

I have also noted that Ronson Oil FAR outlast actual Zippo fluid.
