Best butane too use?

Well for a while now I have been using vector butane. I love the stuff and its never let me down! But recently I splurged on a st DuPont and well I don't wanna spend $40 for butane lol. So I was wondering if any of you guys had a suggestion??

    I always use xikar, I don't think it's all that expensive when you buy like a 3 pack on amazon. Butane is one thing I wouldn't skimp on, when it's in a good lighter.

    I've been using Xikar or Jetline Butane. Zippo butane is actually junk.
  • Xikar, although I got this butane at the hardware store and its actually really good

    I have always used Xikar and been happy with it. Can be found for a good price @ amazon but I usually just get it from my local B&M....

    Whatever's been tripled refined should work.

    Jetliner butane, I think it's the same stuff as vector one 5 times refined. It's the only fluid I use.

    Vector is good! Though while watching a video on cigarobsession, I realized that perhaps having butane sit too long may cause problems with lighters.
