Many times OilView users want to shop around to get the best buy for consumable materials such as bottles, tubing, CO2 cartridges, and calibration fluids. Here is the information I have compiled -- see "Consum1.doc" below. If any of you have other sources, let me know and I will pass out the word. By the way, I am very happy using "Lamp Oil" from Walmart for diluted sample testing using the 5100, 51PC, and 51WD. To test the cleanliness of lamp oil or kerosene, simply test it all by itself and expect clean results. You can install a final 0.75 micron filter element to remove particles if you want. To do this, some like to use a stainless steel garden sprayer with a Millipore filter adapter on the outlet. Color in the lamp oil has no effect on results. I do think it's a good idea to avoid using scented lamp oil -- unless everybody agrees on the fragrance. All-in-all, unscented lamp oil is my new favorite.
