That sounds right. However, there probably isn't more than 1/4 oz of lighter fluid in a Zippo at any given time. And it isn't "volatilized" in the least. In fact, completely at the other end of the spectrum. Take a bowl, fill it with gasoline in an open area (where there is some air movement) and throw a match in it. About as good a chance it will put the match out as there is it will light. Do it with kerosene or lighter fluid and it almost certainly will extinguish the match.I recall reading once or more sources that declared that a single gallon of gasoline when volatilized in the air and set off will have the blast power of a 3-stick dynamite bundle.
Oh you are so full of shiteFirst, I do not like the smell of that zippo fuel. second, I tried a lot of can butane lighters that were bic style, including vector, all broke. so I bought about 30 mossy oak cheap refillable lighters and that has worked for about 5 years. Within the 5 year span I had to throw 3 away. Not so bad. BEWARE OF ZIPPOS ! Never owned one and never will. My friend had a zippo in his pocket and did not know the lid was open.Having fluid all over the lighter and did not know, lit it and BOOM!! Blew off 3 fingers and metal shards flew and hit and protruded through my other friends neck, who was sitting in the front seat while garret was in the back seat with 3 less fingers. 8O
Not only would it stink, it would also irritate the skin where it had leaked. I know from experience... unfortunately.I'm blown away (no pun, I swear). Why? I just have trouble visualizing someone having a fluid lighter, open in the pocket, with fluid all over it, & NOT being able to smell the totally unmistakable odor & greasy feel of charcoal starter. 8O
