My friends mom was cleaning out someone's house who had died. She found a whole bunch of old lighters that are pretty nice. He gave me one, and I don't know what fluid to put into it. He told me lighter fluid, but I want to be sure. The only information on the lighter at all is at the bottom it says ACCU. Thanks!

Does it look like this http://www.zippo.com/Products/pocketLighters.aspx (basic style wise, It should have a Rope type wick in the bowl area if it does) If so It takes standard Zippo Lighter fulid available at your local convenience store. If not please post Bottom and Top pics. (You dont want to put butane in a Zippo and you can't get Zippo fluid into a butane lighter)

Yeah, what he said,

which I was about to say before I read that he said it.

Be careful about over-filling it if it takes fluid, since the fluid can leak out in your pocket and irritate your skin.
Cheers,
John

I remember when I was younger John and carried a zippo...I would constantly flip the top open in my pocket...and by the end of the day, the fluid would be everywhere because of overfilling.

Its good advice. :thumbsup:

Thank heavens for Butane lighters! You can't do the "open with the thumb trick" but they are certainly safer.

Giving away my age here. Back in the day, if you wanted to be cool you'd fill it with Jade East or some other alcohol-based cologne

Jade East! Now that brings back memories of nights out at college. Some places positively reeked of it. Probably still do Friday nights.

So that's where I went wrong -

it was the cologne that was supposed to be alcohol-based,

not me!
