If I may... If you're using alcohol from the drugstore to preheat your kero burners, be sure to buy the stronger stuff. It's 90% alcohol or higher. Rubbing alcohol, at 70%, just doesn't seem to burn hot enough for a proper preheat. At least that's been my experience.

Also, we buy kerosene for our lamps (aka paraffin) in 2-1/2 gallon jugs from a restaurant supply store (Cash and Carry). Don't remember the price but it was considerably cheaper than $15/gal.
