I understand that someone else went to review this lamp also so if I missed anything please add!!
I bought this lamp about 3 months ago at the Wal-Mart in town. At first I was unimpressed by the lamp being that it weighs what feels like less than a pound. In my mind a solid hurricane lamp should be quite heavy. I did however like design and the carry handle, and for 6 dollars I wouldn't have felt bad if it was junk. I can't say that it is. I used the recommended oil called gold medallion lamp oil and costs about $5.50 for a 64 oz. bottle. The lamp itself holds about 2 oz. in the reservoir. I followed all of the manufacturers instructions, such as using the proper oil and letting the wick soak for 15 minutes before lighting, and also about keeping the flame set to not produce smoke. After about 16 hours of use over a three day span I cannot report any problems and must say this lamp is very fuel efficient. The lamp is easy to disassemble for cleaning, stays cool, produces a good amount of light, and when following the manufacturers instructions is virtually smoke and smell free. I would recommend this lamp to someone on a budget as the total investment for this efficient light source is roughly 12 bucks plus tax. Of course if you have the time and money to find and buy a "real" farm lantern, I would recommend that. The only downsides that I have encountered is the light weight of the lantern and the oil reservoir has no way to accurately judge the fuel level. Also, the fuel filler hole is very small so a small funnel should be used to avoid spills. I recommend refilling the oil reservoir before each use.
Now to the survival minded, if you had to use gasoline you could. Extra wicks can be made from shoe lace or strips of cloth. The carry handle and glass retainer can be replaced with a wire hanger if needed. The glass might be difficult to replace but a can with holes or slots cut into the sides could be made to work. Aloha!
ETA: I rated this lantern 6 points out of a possible 10. The positive points of this lamp are as follows; it is reliable, easy to use, has a great design, a great price, easy to disassemble and clean, is field expedient, and can be used as a light source or signal. The negative points I found were the light weight for what it is; a farm lantern, also some accessories are required for proper use, the fuel level is difficult to judge accurately, and the glass can be broken easily, especially if dropped.
