    Default Biofuel / Ethanol

    Hey Guys,

    I recently purchased a 'mood flame' from dusk for the table on my deck, it runs on an eco fuel (Ethanol type UN 1170 rectified alcohol denatured with Tertiary Butyl Alcohol 0.25%).

    Does anyone know where I could buy this in bulk? A 1 litre bottle from Dusk, and as awesome as it looks, it doesnt burn for too long and costs $20 for a litre!

    Would be interested in buying this in bulk (perhaps a 5l container) to keep me stocked up

    Thanks for the help,

    Ryan,

    You can not buy ethanol in bulk without a licence.

    It is considered a controlled substance due to its favoured status in the back yard production of illegal mood altering substances....

    No but you can by 25L containers of methylated spirits which is simply denatured ethanol . . . try here: Methylated Spirits 25L - WF Plastic Pty Ltd or here: Industrial Methylated Spirits 25 Litre Drum. Its all here at Bulkwholesale.com.au
