I suppose I'd ask what you're going to use it for. Pure ethanol (duty paid) is difficult to get and expensive; something like 25 for 500ml. Other alcohols are easier, maybe methanol or iso propyl alcohol. As I said, it depends what you want it for. I have the details of a supplier in Audenshaw who don't seem to fussy who they supply. I bought some pretty nasty chemicals there recently.

Paraffin is probably cheapest. Any alcohol is going to be more expensive. What were you burning; vodka?
Seriously, if you think the job is going to take some time, why not hire a propane heater?

It was more of a one off when the weather turned bad yday. Summer is on the way so im not really after spending any pennies on a new heater.

I just have a crappy old burner that does the job when when running it on ethanol it doesnt give off as many bad fumes as paraffin....I think?
