    Morning, friends.

    I need help with the translation of "lighter fuel". Is it "combustible de/para mecheros"?

    Here is the context (re. some of the things not allowed to be carried in a helicopter):
    'Strike anywhere' matches, lighters containing unabsorbed liquid fuel (other than liquefied gas), lighter fuel and lighter refills are not permitted;

    Here is my attempt:
    No se permite llevar fósforos del tipo “enciende en cualquier sitio”, mecheros que contengan combustible líquido no absorbido (distinto al gas licuado), combustible de mechero o recambio para mecheros.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: I wasn't sure whether or not this question belonged here or in "specialized terminology".

    Sounds better "combustible para mecheros", and also "gasolina para mecheros". Saludos

    Totalmente correcto.
    Lighter fuel- Combustible de mecheros or even Gasolina de mecheros. Maybe this latter is more common here in Spain although I think that that fuel is not exactly gasoline, anyway, we use it.
