Ventless Fireplace Fuel (Pourable)

  1. Gel Fuel is flammable. Failure to follow warnings can result in property damage, serious burns or death.
  2. Do not attempt to refuel a unit that is already burning. Pouring any kind of fuel on a fire can result in flare-ups or flashbacks. Make sure the fire is out and allow the unit to cool for 20 minutes before refueling.
  3. Use only Real Flame® ventless gel fuel in the approved Real Flame unit. Do not use with any other fuel or flammable material.
  4. Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable materials, including gel fuel, near this product. Vapors or leaks from these types of items could travel to sources of flame or heat and increase the risk of fire or explosion.
  5. Burn only Real Flame® Ventless Fireplace gel in the Real Flame approved product. Never burn trash, paper, wood,or any other fuel in the unit.
  6. The fuel is not for use by anyone below the age of 18. Keep away from children and pets.
  7. Make sure the fireplace is placed on a flat and level service. Otherwise, the unit could tip easily and start a fire that could damage property or cause serious injury.
  8. Never add fuel to a fire or pour on hot surfaces; doing so could cause flare-ups or flashbacks that could burn someone.
  9. Light Real Flame ventless gel fuel only when it has been poured into a Real Flame approved burn cup or trough. Do not overfill. Wipe up spills. Then use a long match or extended butane lighter to ignite fuel.
  10. Never leave a burning fire unattended, especially around children or pets.
  11. Never touch any metal surfaces during or immediately after burning gel fuel. They will be extremely HOT. Allow surfaces to cool for 20 minutes before touching burn cups or troughs and or moving the unit.
  12. Do not wear flammable or loose clothing when operating the fireplace or fire column.
  13. Exercise the same precautions you would with any open fire.
