    Have you looked at a peanut lighter? Zippos weren't designed to be sealed. Anything you do to an existing zippo will only be a stopgap. It either won't work that great, or it will be annoying to use, and then you will stop using it. For a high quality seal that is removable, an oring is one of the best options. Plus, they are cheap. What you want is a lighter that has the same function of a zippo, but round with a case that is designed to have an oring. If you still want that square zippo, then machine a zippo case out of flat stock and put an oring groove in it.

    UPDATE!

    I bought a can of ZIPPO fuel (metal can). Walmart carries them, but it was back in the sporting goods section, not up front in the lighter section.

    See, kyratshooter? I'm taking advice. ;o)

    I got a cool solution for this one. I totally get how much it sucks to have the fuel evaporate when you need it.

    We have a cool solution for spammers too. I totally get how much it sucks to be banned when you are trying to sell something on someone else's dime. (Crash - Glad to see you got to end your day on an up note)

    The beating of the dead horse continues...

    Metal Zippo can kept in the car, bulges a little, but not bad. We'll see what happens in August here in the South.

    The Tabasco bottle cap can get loose in your pants pocket with other stuff bumping into it. Best for BOB.
    It hasn't lost any fluid while stored in the car. Ditto about August.

    Finally went by a bike shop and got used inner tube. Zippo is now surrounded by a rubber seal. NOTE: Cut a piece of the tube as long as the tube is wide. The first one I cut looked like a wide rubber band, and it moved around on the lighter when it was in my pocket. No problem with a longer one.

    Yes, I REALLY want to use a Zippo. I have a Bic, too.

    The though occurs to me that this is getting over-thought and out of hand....

    Dollar store, 5 kinda Bic's $1 buck.....
    My Zippos are safely in a drawer, retired, with many memories on my smoking days....

    Eye drop...don't know, I didn't bring it along to "The Place".

    Yea, I moved this one to my don't give a $#%^ file two weeks ago.

    It is like refusing to carry an AK even though the mag catch on the AR is broken and it keeps dumping its magazines.

    It did get me to thinking tough, and I ordered a couple of peanut lighters and a half dozen of the old style "metal matches" to scatter through the gear. They have an O ring and hold fluid for years. Thanks to Ebay I am now $10 poorer and I did not have to go to Walmart or try to find a bicycle shop. I am not sure if bicycle shops are allowed in KY.

    The only bike shop I know of is up in Dayton and it is owned by the Wright Brothers. I thik they carried Zippos too.

    Wow where do I start.... read the thread. Just a couple of pointers... Zippo was wind proof was cool but leaks...Bic clearly leaks in cold weather. With a white Bic one can see how much fluid is left inside. A pink Bic and they will all laugh at you.....AN empty Bic can still light a birds nest with the sparker. (remove the safety)


    So I light my fires with this...works every time....
