When I first bought my gel fireplace I was buying cans of this "fuel." Yea, it crackles like a fire. Great. But it is very expensive. I like having a fire more than once a day. It didn't take long before I realized I could get the same effect and heat output with plain old 70 and 90% rubbing alcohol. A 32oz bottle from * is * and *. I mix 70 and 90 together. I saved some of the cans from when I purchased gel fuel. If you want to save yourself some money and use your fireplace more, fill your cans with rubbing alcohol. I have told so many people about this and once they tried it they realized what a rip off gel fuel is.
With gel fuel there's always a smell. This product had a nice flame but must be used in a well ventilated room. Enjoyed the flame & lasted a long time.
