    Real Flame Gel Fuel is an environmentally friendly, clean-burning gel that leaves no messy soot, ashes or smoke behind. Each 13-oz can burns up to 3 hours and emits up to 3000 BTU's per can per hour. Whether you like relaxing in front of a safe, clean indoor fire on cold winter nights or want to warm up your patio so you can stargaze deep into the early-morning hours, this gel fuel helps you keep your specially designed gel fireplace running.

  • Nice Flame

    I enjoy the real flame and the sound it makes. Theses cans really do throw off the heat too. For my small bedroom I only light one can at a time otherwise it gets too warm. I have noticed that so far I have not had a can last quite 3 hours even though they say they should last 3 to 3.5. I always stir the gel before use, this does help make sure all the gel burns down evenly, which gives it a little more time. I enjoy this product but it is a bit expensive for the length of time of the flame. The cans also have a one year self life so plan ahead!

    One downside to gel fuel fireplaces is the cost of the gel, not to mention finding it. Having exhausted local possibilities, I trawled the net and found these guys. Realflame does a good flame: very tall and bright, with the occasional crack and pop for effect. Most of the cans I've tried so far come in around the three hour mark, too, so that works out very well. All in all, a good value.

  • Real Flame Gel Fuel

    Have always ordered this product for my gel fireplace and it is consistantly an outstanding value/product

  • Positive Review

    At the price charged for 16 cans, one would be foolish, not to make the purchase.

  • Fast Shipping

    I've been using this product for years, so nothing new to say about that. I continue to find this product is a good value for the money & makes a nice fire in my "fireplace". It's really nice to have a fire on a cold, windy winter nights. What was really great was the great value for the gel. I search this product each year for good prices & this was the best by far. Also impressive was the fast shipping. It was a pleasure to do business with overstock.

  • Shop aroud

    Shop around before purchasing this item from overstock this gel fuel is a great secondary heat source but, check the ************ ******* for a list of ************. I have found that overstock sometimes has the best price but sometimes they do not. Do your homework and this item can be purchased for under ***** dollars per can. Also check for the correct quantity to purchase sometimes it is cheaper to buy a case of 16 versus a case of 24 and vise-versa. If you check around you can get it under ***** dollars per can (each can burns for three hours and creates 3000 BTU's) My unit burns up to three at a time. It is ventless odor free heat. It was great to be able to add a fireplace that heats with real fire while avoiding a major construction project. To me electric fireplaces are not in the least convincing and I have not seen one that reduces a flame which looks even remotely real. The biggest obstacle is finding a way to disguise so that they can see from the outside unit. Mine came with a F a UX long which partially hi I added some decorative fire glass to finish the camouflage. It definitely helps supplement our home which doesn't quite do the job when temperatures below freezing in central Ohio. around ***** dollars per can is not bad considering the price of electric or gas heat. I gave the item 3 stars not because of dissatisfaction with the product but because of the price which is not consistently lowest at

I have an outdoor fireplace purchased from Restoration Hardware which requires me to pour the gel into a repository. Are these cans the right product to buy? I used to buy them in larger plastic squeeze bottles but can no longer find that product. Thanks! margaretgstewart on Jan 10, 2015

Do you need any kind of ventilation with this product, if you plan on using it in a relatively small bedroom? DragonWolf on Dec 2, 2014

Answer This Question

Hello DragonWolf, there is no certain amount of ventilation required for this fuel because it is clean burning. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 2, 2014
No ventilation needed. It gives off a faint alcohol smell when first lit, but that goes away quickly. Gives off a small amount of heat. shopperinvb on Dec 11, 2014

Great question susiemey06. No, we do not suggest roasting, cooking or reheating any food product with Real Flame 13-oz Gel Fuel. It is just not safe or made for that. Have a great day. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 24, 2013
i do not think so. zarsenal on May 29, 2013
I wouldn't. There is a smell to the fuel burning, although slight. rls123 on Dec 10, 2013

Yes, you can put the lid back on the can with the special tool that is available if you want to douse the flame, and reuse it later if there is fuel left in the can. bezzi1 on Feb 26, 2013
Thank you for your question. The Real Flame 13-oz Gel Fuel, can be snuffed out and then relit when ready for next use. We do suggest to stir the fuel before relighting. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 27, 2013
I don't have the snuffing tool myself, but found that using my extra-long pliers to bring the lid over the can does the job just fine. kiyyik on Dec 13, 2013
Yes, you can reuse it. I have. Just stir it and relite! am2013 on Dec 13, 2013
