When filling your lighter, you must make sure you have the right fuel for it. For instance, Zippos have five different inserts, which require different fuel based on which insert you use. For the regular and pipe inserts, you would use the traditional Zippo lighter fuel, while both the single and double torch inserts use butane. For the fifth insert, the double arc, it is actually charged electronically with no fuel required.
For the gentlemen who are cigar aficionados, we recommend the single or double inserts which would mean the butane fuel you can find below. Since butane is an odorless fuel you don’t have to worry about the odor having an effect on the flavor of the cigar, which is a concern about the traditional Zippo fuel. The butane is also used in many multi purpose lighters, so it is a versatile fuel that you should make sure you have extra for when you decide to go camping.
Having the extra fuel as a backup means that you will not have to worry about heading to the store to grab any more disposable lighters that always manage to get lost or run out at the wrong time. You can always have fuel in your lighter, which means you will always be ready for the occasion. This will save you money, and save on the amount of pollution that gets left behind for future generations to deal with.
