Using these FireGlo Fuel cans with a gel fuel Fireplace is extremely convenient. because the upfront costs are so low. However, if you live in colder climates like up here in the Northeast, the fuel can solution gets pricey. During the winter, I like to spark up the fire in order to warm up the house quickly. The forced air we have takes a little while to bring up the temperature but running the gel fireplace quickens the process.
The cans generally don't produce a smell UNTIL they get to the end of the can. Then they generally produce a propane-like smell. The cans last about 2 hours to 2 3/4 hours. So burning the fireplace all day is usually not an option because it would be to costly. I normally only use the gel fuel when there is a chill in the air I want to knock out quickly or on special occasions. I have also noticed a darkening of our olive-colored paint and ceiling above our wall-mounted gel fireplace.
The cans do provide a good amount of heat and they allow me to warm up the (part of the) house quicker than just using our forced-air heat. I also enjoy the crackling sound produced by the bubbles in the can. It actually sounds better than a real fire.
Overall, the cans produce a good amount of heat and ambiance but they are very expensive to use often or for long periods of time.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The cans are generally in good shape although at times there is rust inside when you open them.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description is mostly accurate butI have noticed a darkening of our olive-colored paint and ceiling above our wall-mounted gel fireplace.
The canisters emit an initial odor that is unpleasnt and repeat this again much more strongly as they are burning down to the end. The cans do not last as long as I had thought they would. You get about 2 to 2 and half hours max out of them. The plus is they really do produce a large and interesting flame pattern like a real fireplace would and it snaps and crackles while burning like real wood.
I don't understand how so many people gave this glowing reviews.
I just set up everything for my wife (xmas present) in the bedroom and the smell that radiated was chemically'. The gel itself smelled like strong alcohol which was fine, but when activated for 5 minutes, the room became covered in this awful chemical smell. It was unbearable and terrifying in a sense. I tried googling if this was normal or harmful but can't find an answer. We ended up capping the can and I am now searching for an electric fireplace. The one we picked is convertible so hopefully we can just find the proper insert because I dont plan on spending our nights fearing for the worst for a little atmosphere. That said, I have 23 unused cans if anyone would like them.

These are the the fuel cans necessary for indoor fireplace. After checking many different websites I realized - as usual Overstock has the best prices!!! When in doubt, Overstock will beat the rest out!!
This product gives off heat and has a nice appearance, which is good. But, the downside to this is when you out the fuel fire. A nasty burning alcohol smell comes from the smoke. This causes a lot of work for me because my smoke alarm goes off and I have to end up opening the window for a while. Then I have to remind myself to close it. For an outdoor makeshift fireplace, this works. For indoors, not so much.
These cans work great. 2 can will definitely heat an area 15 x 20. They have the sound of crackling wood which is nice. The lid is on pretty tight but once u open one or two u get the hang of it. Each can last 3 hours which is a good time. Just keep the lid and slide it back on top when done. It will extinguish flame immediatly Good quality, as described. I recommend to anyone looking for these type of cans

They are nearly impossible to open. Is ther some secret to opening?!!loooooo on Dec 27, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Removing the labels from the Fireglo cans is difficult and time consuming. Before using the gel, you have to allocate several minutes per can to peel the labels off. The glue used is strong and the paper is thin. This causes the paper to constantly tear, and to leave paper residue all over the can.

I have a built in gas fireplace. Can I purchase the Real Flame 18" convert to gel log set for $137.99 and use it with the real flame or fire glo fuel cans, instead of using the regular gas logs and fuel?brobin50 on Nov 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, you can use the convert to gel logset in any gas fireplace. You’ll only need to turn off the gas line to the fireplace. Also, the manufacturer suggests to use Real Flame Gel Fuel with Real Flame products because other fuels have not been tested in their fireplaces.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 21, 2012
