The original gel fuel that crackles just like a real fire! Environmentally friendly, non-toxic and safe to burn indoors or out. Real Flame® fuel is pure gelled alcohol that is safe and tested for use in Real Flame® fireplaces and related products. Made from premium ingredients, Real Flame® gel fuel is the leading brand in the market.
This gel fuel wood substitute is an all natural, jelled alcohol that is 100% efficient and ecologically sound. Each can burns for two to three hours and can be reused until empty. A can of Real Flame® jel produce up to 3,000 BTU's an hour.
Since there is no chimney, all the heat stays in the room, giving 100% heat efficiency. Gel fuel is primarily decorative and not recommended as a regular around-the-clock heating device. It is handy in a power outage or other emergency, however.
The cost of burning a can of fuel is approximately $1.04 per hour; most people burn 2-3 cans at once. This is comparable to burning a duralog in a regular fireplace. And don't forget you can close the can and save the fuel to burn another time, unlike a log that you must let burn all the way out once you've lit it.
The by-products of combustion are water vapor and carbon dioxide (what we exhale) not to be confused with carbon monoxide (which would be dangerous). Since no smoke or dangerous gas is emitted when burning, you do not need a chimney or any exterior ventilation.
Salt water injected in the gelled alcohol provides a realistic crackling sound as the fuel burns. This fuel provides a nice high yellow flame. Each fireplace includes two cans of gel fuel; you will need to order this case to have more fuel to burn.
