this is a great way to get a single flame with a zippo lighter and just one other item. read on.....

to show what this process can do,i started this fire using this method.

p.s. dont forget to rate and comment

Step 1: items.

1.zippo with a flint FUEL NOT NEEDED!!!!!!!!!!
2.some tag,axe,other flamable substance that is sprayable.

that's it!!!!

this is about as big a flame as i can get from this method.
Did this once when hunting. Used some alcohol from first aid kit. Filled the Zippo up with kerosene from camp stove on a few occasions as well.Nice that you can use almost any flammable fluid in a Zippo in an emergency.

This helped me out if a dry pinch lighting a bowl a second ago!
Can you soak the cotton inside with axe? will it work? or will it just dry out?
break cleaner lasts for about 3 days when you fill a zippo with it
hairpsray is better
liquid wrench for plastic.
haha dude my uncle gave me a zippo but it doesn't have anymore fluid in it and my parents wont get me any so i was joking to my parents that i would use wd40 instead and they started freaking out. haha
did they buy you fluid after that and zippos also work amazing with ronson oil 4 dollers at a local doller store mine is silver doller plus
 : / that would gum up the zippo -_- 
I approve!<br /> <br />
