Diggers Shellite is a flammable hydrocarbon solvent used primarily as lighter fuel. (Also known as Recosol R55.)

Typical Uses:

  • Lighter fuel.
  • Metal cleaning.
  • Fuel for Shellite stoves, torches and lanterns.


  • Colourless liquid with a paraffinic, sweet odour.
  • A weak solvent that is unlikely to affect the surface of most materials.
  • Performs well in situations requiring a solvent that evaporates quickly with no residue.
  • Solvency – high solvency of greases and oils means it can be used to clean surfaces prior to painting.
