    i bought i lighter awhile back, when i was in england. it then ran out.
    once back in SA i tryed to refill it but couldnt. it seems the refill hole is bigger than standard SA lighters or am i just been stupid here?
    it does blow out a green flame, so it acts almost like a mini blow torch and goes threw the gases quicly.
    pics so u can understand better.

    If you buy the can of refill gas it comes with about 6 or 7 different adapters in the lid, one of them should fit.

    Try a Pick 'n pay or your local tearoom, they normally have it, it's like a long deodorant can, if you look at the lid you will see will the different adaptors in different colours all stuck in the lid.

    Yeah pick and pay has them. The lid is white with the diff colour adaptors. Just take the lighter with to pick and pay and ask them. I'm sure one of those adaptors must fit, there's quite a few of them!

    Gaz - I am QUITE sure that the "normal" lighter refill should work - perhaps try a different one to what you have tried, Gaz...
