For a frequent user, zippo can last for 1 to 2 weeks but at the same time, if you dont use it then there are chances that it will dry out in 3 or 4 days. It is a little strange but a lot of people have seen this.
How long should a Zippo last between refills?
A Zippo lighter will keep its fuel supply for about two to three weeks in nominal conditions. But most of the time its fuel evaporates entirely in one to two weeks.
How can I make my Zippo lighter last longer?
Higher temperature definitely increases evaporation rate. Keeping it away from body heat and not letting it heat up a lot from flame will keep the fuel from evaporating too fast. Other than that, concentration gradient - a seal will reduce the evaporation around the container; wont stop evaporation through the wick.

Can you fill Zippo with gasoline?
Very simple: YES, you can! Gasoline is very similar to regular Zippo fuel, and is a lot cheaper. So: you can certainly fill your Zippo with white spirit/cleaning petrol, and it works well, but we still recommend using regular Zippo fuel.
