The efficient bioethanol fuel is the sole method to keep your bioethanol fireplace going. Just squeeze it out of its squeezable bottle, pour the fuel into the fuel box and enjoy your fireplace for long periods of time. But how long exactly? That hinges on your preferred use of the fuel box.

So, how long does bio ethanol fuel burn in a biofire?

On average, a litre of our bioethanol fuel will last between 3 and 4 hours. The exact time varies according to how fully open you have the opening of the steel fuel box. When opened fully, fuel will be used at a faster rate than when it is only half opened.

Fully open

3 hours


Larger bio fires (with larger steel fuel boxes) will burn the biofuel at a faster rate than smaller bioethanol fireplaces, whilst others with a smaller opening may burn for longer. If used outdoors, then any wind will make the fuel burn faster and so shorten the total burn time.
