Emergency Fuel You can Depend Upon

In an emergency situation, the ability to produce fire is critical.
It enabled our primitive ancestors to become civilized. Have you ever wondered how you are going to boil water or cook your food or heat your shelter in an emergency without electricity or utilities? InstaFire's Fire Starter & Fuel solves this problem.  2-Gallon Emergency Fuel Buckets contain enough fuel to cook about 30 meals.

It can be stored virtually anywhere, including your basement or storage room. The bucket has a 30-year shelf life. It also can be stored right next to emergency food without your food taking on the taste of your fuel (leaching). Place it in one pile and make sure your pot or pan is elevated approximately one to 3 inches above the flame. 1 cup will burn for 5-10 minutes with occasional stirring.

No lighter fluid is needed to start a small fire. InstaFire Fuel burns clean without any chemical taste to your emergency food. Use it as an environmentally friendly alternative to light your briquettes. It's excellent for grills, camp stoves or charcoal chimneys.

InstaFire Fire Starter & Fuel Features:

  • Lights wet wood
  • Burns at 1000 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Water resistant - perfect for harsh weather, snow
  • 1 cup will boil four cups of water in ten minutes
  • Up to 30-year shelf life
  • Three-second light time
  • Sustains flame in up to 20-30 mph winds once lit
  • Safe to store near food
  • Made from non-toxic, food safe natural materials
  • Benzene free
  • Made in the U.S.A by hard working Americans

This innovative fire starter material is made from recycled wood, volcanic rock, and a new, patented blend of food-grade paraffin wax. It burns green. The leftover ash can be used as a natural fertilizer.

Great fire starter

Directions say use 1/4 cup but I used 1/8 cup. I placed it in tissue paper and used a striker. Worked great. I recommend this product.

I live off grid and heat with a wood stove. We had a snowstorm with tema in the single digits and my wood was wet and frozen. I followed the instructions and had a fire going in 10 minutes as a posed to an hour of fussing and fighting with it.
