Who Are We?

SunJel is a gel fuel company based out of Salt Lake City, UT. Acquired by Terra Flame in 2012, SunJel is a leader in the gel fuel market and continues expanding through use with Terra Flame’s affordable, high quality décor. Our goal is to provide lasting memories by creating welcoming environments where families and friends can gather together in warmth and comfort. Our passion is quality time.

What is Gel Fuel?

SunJel No Soot, No Fumes, No Odor.

Gel fuel is an up and coming way to create “fire spaces” both indoors and outdoors. We use a proprietary Ethanol/Isopropynol blend to create a beautiful, clean burning flame. Our gel fuel is also odorless and virtually emission-free, which creates a versatility unfound in any other type of fuel. This is why gel fuel works with lanterns, torches and fireplaces alike.

What Makes Us Different?

SunJel has made several innovations in the gel fuel market.

First, we are the only company with Citronella Gel Fuel. Citronella naturally repels mosquitoes and other summer pests, which lets you spend more time outside building memories.

Second, use with Terra Flame products creates an atmosphere unlike any else. Terra Flame prides itself on useful, artistic pieces that enhance any room or landscape. SunJel fuel brings life to any space.

Lastly, gel fuel was originally poured into canisters. This was unsafe and even led to injury. We instead utilize single-use cans. You just open them up and light them. When the flame is spent, you can just throw them away or recycle them. This is easier, safer and costs the same.
