(TFT) Oil lantern consumption
<<Going by real-world lanterns, the 1 liter per hour oil consumption of
'book' lanterns is really high. It ought to be more like 1 liter per day.>>
It's more like one PINT per WEEK.
My family's had a permanent site in a summer campground for over forty years,
where until relatively recently there was no electricity to the campsites.
Lighting for all those summer nights involved propane or glass-chimneyed oil
lanterns. The oil lanterns had a capacity of about a half-pint of kerosene,
and burning a lantern well into the night hours (something less prevalent in
medieval farming communities) would require a refill a shade less often than
every two days.
