Mine---from Weems & Plath---has the little bent stiff wire through the bottom with which you can poke the lighted wick up and down to adjust the flame. At a boat show last week I saw a less-expensive almost-identical no-name copy that had no wick adjustment.

Recommend you use highest-quality fuel you can find, sometimes called 'candle' grade, but the unit will burn smelly kerosene, too.
