How Can You Tell How Much BioFuel is Left in the Can?

The one tricky thing about using refillable canned fuels is knowing exactly when to refill the can. You need to know when to add more refill liquid. How can you tell how much BioFuel is left in the can? Of course, the best way to tell that your BioFuel can doesn’t have much liquid left in it is paying attention. Watch the efficiency of the flame that the can is producing. Obviously, if the can just suddenly stops producing a flame, then it is likely time to refill the can.

But Really, How Much BioFuel is Left in the Can?

Another way you can tell how much BioFuel is left in the can is by paying attention to the burn time. Since the BioFuel Reusable Burner Can has two settings thanks to the dual burner lid, the can will last for either five hours of cooking time or seven hours of heating. If the lid is all the way off, then you are using it at its “cooking” setting. If you only take off the small opening of the lid, then that is the “heating” setting.

For example, if you are using a can for catering purposes, and the food and equipment were all set up at 12:30pm, then you can assume that the BioFuel can will last all the way up until 5:30pm. However, most catering events do not last this long. You may want to keep track on paper or even on the can. That’ll let you know how long you used the can each time.

If you are using your BioFuel can for an emergency such as the power going out during a blizzard, then you want to have the can lid open at the “heating” setting. You can assume that the fuel in the can will last seven hours.

Remember to keep multiple BioFuel cans in stock because you cannot refill the can while it is hot. You must always allow the can to cool down before refilling the fuel liquid. It is a good idea to have multiple cans at once, so you can alternate their usage.

BioFuel has an unlimited shelf life. For that reason, it is important to know exactly how to store BioFuel products. Whether you are a catering manager, frequent camper, or emergency preparedness buff, you don’t just want to make sure that you’re storing the reusable burner cans properly. In addition, you want to make certain you’re storing the refill liquid correctly as well. So, how should you store BioFuel?

How Should You Store BioFuel?

Yes, BioFuel consists of non-hazardous, non-flammable material. However, it is not safe to store in a warm place. You want to make sure to store it at least at room temperature. Preferably, you should store BioFuel in a cool, dry environment.

Many consumers make the mistake of storing canned fuels in places such as the attic or outdoor sheds. We do not recommend this method. In order to keep the BioFuel products as efficient as possible, you may want to consider making a place in a pantry, closet, or basement. One caveat: although the above is true, many people recommend keeping canned fuels in your car during the winter months. That way, you’ll have it in case of an emergency.

BioFuel is the perfect reusable burner can to keep in storage for your next catering event, camping adventure, or emergency. Stock up, keep some in storage, and you’ll never be ill-prepared.

Whether you are camping, catering, or in the middle of an emergency, the burn time of your canned fuel is essential. Do you hate having to throw away a can and light another one after 2–3 hours of use? You’re not only wasting money, but you are also creating excessive amounts of waste. All of this could be avoidable with the help of BioFuel. Our reusable burner cans and refill heating liquid will solve any canned fuel problem. At this point, you could understandably wonder, “How long does BioFuel last?”

Not only is the BioFuel Reusable Burner Can made out of all-natural ingredients, refillable, and reusable, but it also lasts longer than any canned fuel on the market.

So, Just How Long Does BioFuel Last?

Each can is able to last 5 hours for cooking purposes and 7 hours for heating. This is two times longer than any canned fuel that is currently on the market. Our product doesn’t just last longer, but it also burns hotter.

The BioFuel refill liquid makes the can that much better and easier. If your canned heat runs out of liquid after the five to seven hours, we have a plan. Instead of throwing it out and lighting a new can, you can extinguish any existing flame. Then, let the can cool down and refill it with the 15 oz. refill liquid. One refill bottle is equal to 10 hours of cooking and 15 hours of heating. This is the equivalent of TWO CANS.

That’s not all. We have more good news! Although most canned fuels on the market only have a shelf life of two to three years, the reusable burner can and refill liquid has an unlimited shelf life. While we recommend to use BioFuel within the first five years of storage, it can last for years and years. This means you can stock up on it now and always be prepared for any situation or event.

The burn time of canned fuel makes a huge difference when deciding what kind of canned fuel to purchase for a camping weekend, emergency, or catering event. Let BioFuel be there for you.


There’s nothing trending more than natural product use. Whether it’s natural soaps, cleaners, skin care and beauty products, or cooking fuel, the natural product industry is growing! Why? Because natural products are safer to use and less hazardous. That’s why we promote the BioFuel Reusable Burner Can. It is a safer, cleaner, greener cooking fuel.

Things That Set BioFuel Cooking Fuel Apart

1. All-natural safety BioFuel is toxic-free. It releases less CO emissions compared to other cooking fuel cans on the market. That makes it the perfect product for catering, camping, and emergencies.

2. Fun fact: BioFuel is made from food. How more natural can you get?

3. BioFuel is cost-effective. We have developed a reusable burner can that is meant to be relit, reused, and refilled with our BioFuel Refill Liquid. Not only does this approach save our customers money, but it also saves on storage space.

4. Since the BioFuel can was created for refilling and reusing, this helps cut down on any unnecessary waste that we could otherwise be contributing to.

5. The burner canister we produce stays cool to the touch during use and is approved for both indoor and outdoor use. Plus, it is non-flammable.

Those are just a few things that set BioFuel Cooking Fuel apart. Our research and development initiative to create a safer cooking fuel began 25 years ago when we noticed that all cooking fuels that were being sold contained white gas or butane. We care about our customers, so we completed the task and created a safer, hotter, cleaner, and greener cooking fuel.
