Small bottle of kerosene
In-game description

Lantern fuel is a container of kerosene fuel for the storm lantern. It can also be used as an accelerant for starting fires or crafting torches.

Unlike the Jerry can, when the container is emptied, it is spontaneously removed from the player's inventory and spontaneously generated when harvesting a storm lantern or cooking fish when no jerry can is in the player's inventory.

Jerry cans are noticeably more efficient per kilogram than lantern fuel, weighing only 0.4 kg per 0.5 liters collected, while lantern fuel weighs 0.5 kg per 0.5 liters collected.

Refueling a lantern with both a jerry can and lantern fuel in the player's inventory will use the jerry can first. Therefore it is best to drop the jerry can before refueling so the lantern fuel is used first.

Similarly, collecting kerosene (such as by harvesting a storm lantern or cooking a fish) while both items are in the player's inventory will fill any pre-existing partially-filled lantern fuels to the full 0.5 liters before the jerry can. Therefore it is best to drop any containers of lantern fuel which are not already full before collecting kerosene, to force it into the jerry can.

TriviaEdit

Lantern fuel features the fictional brand name "Ever-flame," and the container lists the volume as "350 mL" or 0.35 L, even though a container of lantern fuel can actually holds 0.5 liters.

Curiously, the in-game description of lantern fuel will always describe lantern fuel as "small bottle of kerosene" even when a container is generated from cooking fish. Kerosene is actually a petroleum product and is created from the processing of crude oil.
