(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.
