Xikar Lighter

Hey,

I just bought an Xikar lighter at my local B&M. The guy there was nice enough to fill it up for me, but I am wondering about how long I can expect that fill-up to last. Also, does anyone have any reccomendations of a good butane to use in it? The guy told me NOT to use Ronson fuel in it, or I would be back buying another one the first time I went to fill it.

Thanks as always,

Peter G

Depends on how much you use it. The more flames especially torches the more gas used. I dont use my lighters more than a few times a week and it needs refilling couple times a month maybe.

Get a can and it'll last for a long time though... bunches of fills in those small cans.

Just go back to the place you bought it and buy a can. Surprised they didnt try to sell you one when you bought the lighter.

Lava, if you can find it, or Vector. Vector is sold by Holt's, about $3 a can.

Vector or Lava are your best choices. Anything less than triple filtered will cause you problems down the road. I belive that VecTor is filtered 5 times. Blazer has been reported as a good butane also and I believe that it is filtered 4X....

I think Lava is no longer (again!) but yes, use quintiple refined Vector!

And I refill at least once a week as I'm a three+ a day smoker....
