    I want to buy some Kerosene to clean my chain but I can't find any retailers that sell it in Quebec.

    Anyone have any ideas where I could find some?

    Years ago I bought some at Canadian Tire. They might still have it. In the camping section.

    Yup, Walmart & Canadian Tire have them in their camping sections. Bought some a few weeks ago.

    Head to your local airport and buy a couple of litres of jet fuel. Same stuff. Or, just use varsol. Best "degreaer" around. Plain car gas will do the trick as well....just don't smoke!

    All they have in CT here is white gas or naphtha...that's what the coleman gas is. Apparently none to good for cleaning.

    Have you check small town gas stations? My local gas station has a small Kerosene pump.

    Thought diesel was the same thing? or close enough anyway.

    +1 on the Varsol...they'll have it at any hardware store. Can't beat it.

    Saw it at Home Hardware on the weekend. Stocked where temporary heaters or portable heaters are.

    Thanks guys!

    I'll head over to Home Depot.

    Versol and Naphtha seem to be almost the same product and both of these seem to be a slightly lighter version of Kerosene.

    Cheers!

    Varsol is used as a degreaser in every shop I've ever worked in...
