  1. Has anybody tried running these on liquid fuel as well? I’m thinking whale oil is a non-petroleum-based fuel that might be an alternative. It can be carried in the blubber form…..

      Ha! No local sources for whale blubber, but it would work. We have a modification that allows one to burn alcohol, either denatured, or a form that comes in the yellow Heet bottle.
