Central Draught Petrol Lamp Wicks

  Veritas  Sherwoods, Miller, Famos Juno Vulcan  Raylite  etc were manufactured 
in different Candle Powers or Line ratings and  use Tubular wicks many of which fit a range of lamps and have different names.
Traditionally a Tubular Wick is measured by squashing it flat and taking the width,
 which is not easy if you haven't got the old wick or a Name.
Measure the outside diameter of the fixed Tube the Wick rises on

Petrol Lamps???
The Petrol of yesterday had a much lower Octane rating and contained Lead.
Parafinalia suggests that you use Lamp Oil instead
