Kerosene lamp/lantern trick

When you wick gets too short to reach the bottom of the fuel tank, take a new wick and paperclip (or safety pin) it to the bottom of the old wick. When the paperclip reaches the burner, remove it and now you have used all but 1-2 inches of the old wick.

You could also sew it, but this is easier.
