Stanley pilot fuel suppliers in UK

A question for steam car owners in the UK - especially those in the south of England.

What pilot fuel do you use, and where do you get it?

Hi Peter,
We use petrol for the pilot in our car because it is easy to get hold of, although it does carbon up every now and again. Hexane is good because it is very low carbon, but costs a fortune (100 for 25 litres?). Gas is ok but you need somewhere to put it e.g a toolbox! George.
