we are out of kerosene to start our wood stove. can we use gasoline instead?

wondering if there is a difference between using gasoline or charcoal fluid to start the fire in our wood stove. gas is much cheaper.

Gas is to volatile by itself, you would have to mix with oil 50% to slow down ignition.

I still don't recommend it indoors.

Here is a link video I made for you.
