Kerosene is an attractive alternate to alcohol because it has a higher heating value and is available in many places (as "paraffin"), perhaps at a lower price. The flame is also more visible.

The down side to kerosene is a distinctive odor and the same old preheating routine that you learned to love with alcohol.
