Improvised oil lamp is useful in situations such as power outage, blackout, emergency situation, etc.
These lamps are easy to make and you do not need extensive knowledge.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For this you will need:
-Some sort of container ( I used old Zipo fuel  container )
-Cotton 
-Oil 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Making container you can use anything: bottle, jar, etc.
2.You will need cotton that acts as a "fuse".
3.Oil you can use oil's or some other liquid fuel ( except gasoline of course)

<p>so simple :)</p>
I have several gallons/liters of olive oil that was used for deep frying. <br>I've been looking for an easy to build lamp to utilize this &quot;fuel&quot; for emergency <br>lighting, and this may do it. I'll experiment with strips from old cotton shirts for the <br>wick, but I'd also like to incorporate some method to adjust the amount of flame <br>by lengthening or shortening the wick. Adding a reflector or magnifier would be a nice touch as well.
Yea you can use the lid from old can as a reflector :D <br>
