I'm pretty sure you can't find the chimney for less than this whole lamp. I'm buying 2 just to get the chimneys for older lamps that I own with large resevors.

You can pickup replacements at just about any hardware store.
Ace stores come to mind Also in the south, the variety stores like the Roses, Super Dollar & Bills carries lamps,parts, oil & wicks.
Also several online stores plus Ebay & Amazon have lamps etc.

The lamp size does depend one the amount. I would say that it generally holds between one pint to one quart of oil. For me, I can fill two and one half lamps (of various sizes) with a two quart size.

Ace hardware sells the 8 inch wicks for 25 cents. Even China Ebay can't come close to that. Their best deal is about a dollar per foot... usually sold in 5 ft lengths.

Walmart has the wicks online, or the gardern department at their stores.
Also Hardware stores like Ace. Most of the online stores.

I purchased some wicks from Amazon.com here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008L4UUIE/ref=pe_175190_21431760_M3T1_ST1_dp_1 It was the cheapest place online and you get 12 feet total!

Wicks are available at most stores that sell the lamp or oil, but I buy mine on ebay and Lehman's on line site. Walmart does do a decent pricing, but I myself buy large amounts.
One thing to remember though is that you must know the size of wick you need.

You should be able to get a wick at a hardware store. Some department stores may carry them also.

Kerosene is the best for the long run because it's usually available from distributors for under $4 a gallon. It's $14 a gallon from hardware stores and the lamp oil that the Dollar General stores carry is about $10 per gallon. Diesel fuel will work but it smokes too much for indoor use.

It will not work well. The oil is too viscous and won't travel up the wick fast enough. Some people have gotten a flame from that type of fuel, but it burns up the wick, makes a lot of soot, and doesn't put off a lot of light.

You may be able to use vegetable oil but you cannot use olive oil. Not only would olive oil burn poorly and throw very little light (if it would even light at all), but olive oil has a very low smoke point (which is why it isn't used for frying) and would create A LOT of soot and smoke making it horrible for indoor use of any kind.

As for the vegetable oil, I wouldn't recommend it for similar reasons as olive oil (relatively low smoke point as compared to real lamp oil, burns poorly, throws little light), but I know in emergency situations it can work. If at all possible I would avoid using anything other than quality unscented indoor-safe lamp oil or clean-burning isopropyl alcohol (70% or above should not give off carbon monoxide if wick is kept properly trimmed and at correct height). Good luck :)

answer 1
Yes it can. That's the fuel that these lamps were designed for. It may be a little stinky for indoor use, but people did it for the 3/4 of a century so it must not be too bad. Don't use anything with a higher flashpoint though, such as gasoline, naptha, or alcohol.

I have never burned Kerosene in mine, I have heard of others burning vegetable oil in it, and scented oils. If you are interested in trying the kerosene, it would be wise to begin outside and away from burnable materials.
One thing I myself might be worried about first is the scent of kerosene.

I believe any oil lamp can burn kerosene it's just oil lamp oil burns cleaner and doesn't stink, I have even heard of someone using I think olive oil too in an extreme emergancy but don't honestly know how well it works plus it could be expensive if you do that, I have never tried it you have use your own discression.
