"It has no oil left and cannot be used by itself."
The Empty Lighter (オイルの切れたライター oiru no kireta raitā ) is a key item in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
It is found at Bar Jack.
If one tries to burn the rope, bounding the door at the Residential area alley with empty lighter, the message will occur: "You can't use the lighter without oil."
