Drip Torch Operating Instructions - as supplied by the manufacturer - KCR Manufacturing
CAUTION: Use of fire lighting equipment should be restricted to trained, experienced personnel, who will take precautions to avoid endangering themselves and others' property and safety. Keep torch in good operating condition, inspect periodically and replace worn or missing parts. Handle all petroleum products with the same precautions as when handling gasoline!
Fuel: See your agency's or bureau's policy for authorized fuel mixtures.
Starting: Fill the drip torch, leaving a 2" air space at the top. This will allow for expansion. Do not fill near open flame or other ignition source. Wipe off outer surface of the tank and handle after filling. Remove discharge plug (100-81) and insert in blind socket. Open breather valve approximately 2 full turns. Tip drip torch forward, allowing fuel to wet ignitor. Light igniter, drip torch is ready to use.
Storing and proper closure: CAUTION: ALLOW THE IGNITER TO COOL PRIOR TO STORAGE: Stand the drip torch upright until the igniter burns out and cools to room temperature. After the igniter cools, remove the lock ring, reverse the spout and return it to the inside of the tank. Screw on the lock ring securely. Tighten lock ring by hand until snug and then turn an additional 1/4 turn. Drip torch should be stored securely in a mounted bracket designed for this purpose.
CARRY AND STORE YOUR DRIP TORCH WITH THE SAME CARE YOU WOULD GIVE TO ANY FUEL TANK.

I bought two for clearing maintaining our land. They shipped quickly. These are built like a tank! Excellent quality construction. Less $$ than competitors for an equal or better product. I'll update my review after a few months use.
The CSP site and service so far has been great!
