I doubt octane helps gas evaporate quicker. From my previous career in small engine performance, the only reason why octane is added to fuels for high performance engines is because those engines have high compression pistons. Higher compression pistons do make a bigger bang, but without enough octanes, it’s possible that the fuel would ignite just a tad too early and give you a ping. That robs power. So they add octane to correct this problem. So, it would make sense to me that it wouldn’t add any evaporation properties as this would simply enhance firing which would cause a ping.I've used my zippo with gasoline (high octane) before. I suppose it evaporates a bit faster but yes, it does work.
No you can't. The lighter works by having a liquid go up a wick. Gels cannot go up a wick.As we all know, zippo fluid/gas/etc dries up fast. I have been wondering if I can saturate my lighter with flammable gels instead. Since gels evaporate slower, I wonder if it will make the lighter last longer when gone unused. Haven't tried it yet but I will in the next few months.
I've lit washer fluid on fire. I also won 5 bucks. :thumb:Gas, charcoal lighter fluid, etc. Pretty much anything flammable.
BTW, no matter how much windshield washer says it flammable, I could never light any of it on fire.
