Filling kerosene lamps

4505 Views 9 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  knukamok
I have a couple of kerosene lamps and have started storing kerosene, but am finding it a messy process filling the lamps. I am using a funnel to pour from the bottle, but I am still finding a lot gets spilled, and it is too messy to fill the lamps in place, so I have to carry the full lamp around which is not ideal.

Anyone have any suggestions?

My favorite though is my 1/2 gallon brass can:
