You get one gallon cans of kerosene at Wal-Mart (in the paint section), Home Depot, and Lowes. Some Home Depot and Lowes stores have kerosene in 5 gallon cans or 2 1/2 gallon containers. A lot of hardware stores have one gallon cans of kerosene.Okay, stupid question that I should've asked in the first post. WHERE do you get kerosene? Sounds like I'll prefer lamp oil, but need kerosene as a backup.
