We are so glad we ordered these. What a great price compared to some of the other brands out there. Also, I like the fact that there is no label to rip off. And truly NO SMELL! How fantastic when you have kids and you don't want them breathing those terrible fumes other brands put off!

Love my new Gel Fireplace
The gel fuel is really oddorless. I have the fireplace in my basement just to take the chill out and the heat generated from the gel fuel is nice and warm. Looks just like a gas fireplace, I have a gas fireplace in my living room, I think I like the gel flame better than the flame in the gas stove.

Seems pretty good
I like this. This is my first time using it. A few things I noticed is that 1) it's rather thin like water not thick like like gel 2) I got absolutely no smell from this product and 3) it really didn't crackle like a real flame from firewood. I expected this gel to be a lot thicker than what it is. I thought it'd be more along the lines of hair gel consistency, but it's actually thin like hand sanitizer. Upon opening, it smelled just like isopropyl alcohol, but once lit, I smelled nothing--no scent at all. It burned for about 2 hours, which I was expecting a little bit more. I thought I'd hear a crackling sound, but I really just heard a few "pops" here and there. When I got really close to the fire, I did kinda hear a crackling, but it was so very low. All in all I think it's good and I may purchase again

If you are worried about the odor, shake the ...
If you are worried about the odor, shake the can, and open the can 30 minutes before you get the match.

As can runs out smell gets really strong
This is not totally fume-free. It's better than the real flame cans but at the end of the cans burn-off smell gets very strong. Which means we can't burn these cans all the way down and they already only last about an hour and a half.
Also- we received the wrong cans and getting replacements was super confusing. AlumiGogo didn't understand what was wrong and so we dealt directly with sunjel and they were a nightmare to get ahold of. Long story short took an extra 2.5 weeks to get our order right. They sent us citronella outdoor gel cans. Um- no thank you.

Odorless and burns completely!
Well we just burned our first can and the other reviews were spot on. There is no odor and it burns until it is completely gone. There was some crackling but not annoying amount. It did its job by taking the chill out of the area. We usually buy Jensen's Real Flame Fuel, we have for years; however, after only two cans we returned the case. The odor was horrible and we could not tolerate it. Real Flame also doesn't completely burn, it leaves 1/8 to 1/3 of a can. What a scam. Stick with this brand and you will be happy. Remember to shake gently and opened carefully...love it!

Things have changed!
I'm wondering if the formula hasn't been changed. The last two shipments have been very liquidy - not gel like last year's orders. There is also liquid left in the can (about 1/2 a cup) when the fire goes out; last years orders burned to the very bottom. Also, there is no cracking noise like last year. The flames last approximately two hours, and there is NO odor. That is worth sticking with the Sun-gel brand. We used to use s brand that lasted 2 1/2 hours and crackled like a real fire, but it had a terrible odor.

#Sunjel Fuel, 2-Hour Burn Time
Nice flame and crackles, but one 13 oz. Can burns almost two hours. Less burn time than I expected. I do like that it was quite odorless.

Good fuel, NOT long-lived
Someone said that you get 4 hours per can burn time.
Um, yeah, in a real expensive fireplace maybe, but if you pour it on a log, count on maybe 15 minutes.
I use it as a starting accelerant.
It does burn clean and hot.

Very good product w/ conditions...
The clear gel fuel works very well... no smells/odors! Often AlumiGogo substitutes the Citronella based fuel so be careful. It can only be burned outside.
