    Manufactured logs work great and burn at a predictable rate. For a great waterproof firestarter cut newspaper in 3" strips. Roll the strip snugly and tie with twine. Make fatter ones by overlapping the strip with an additional strip/strips a few inches before getting to the end. Soak the rolled up starters in melted paraffin for a few minutes then hang to cool. Around the diameter of a standard magic marker works well.

    Used motor oil usually does the trick pretty good!!

    I hope you are kidding.

    Used motor oil is hazardous
    Low temperature burning of used oil can create airborne pollutants that can get into people's lungs and have adverse health effects.

    Motor oil picks up a variety of hazardous contaminants when used in engines and transmissions. These contaminants include lead, cadmium, chromium, arsenic, dioxins, benzene and polycyclic aromatics. If used motor oil and the contaminants it contains are disposed of inappropriately and released into the environment, they can harm humans, plants, animals, fish and shellfish.
