Just got my Zippo back from headquarters
after having it refurbed due to a bad hinge. Having not carried one for years now, I am reliving my youth (bought this lighter at a garage sale for something like 50 cents probably 20 years ago) and relearning some old issues. Every lighter runs out of fuel at some point. And although Zippos give you a bit of a window, (doesn't light, close it and let it sit, get another light or two out of it) it will eventually stop lighting altogether. Let's hope this is not when you need it most! You can always carry a tin of lighter fluid with you at all times, but that's a bit cumbersome. Here's another idea.
This is pretty basic, but a really good thing to have around if you've ever carried a Zippo lighter (or knockoff, I guess. . .) for any length of time.
Let's get started!
