There are special funnel filters that help to clean kerosene that you'd buy from gas station (cheaper). Gas station kerosene seems to always be dirtier than store bought K1. Dirty fuel unfiltered will destroy your wick in as little as a month. Using kerosene additive seems to help this but I recommend buying a filter funnel. Could also mix 50/50 with store bought stuff.
