Solid Fuel Tablets

I work in a hardware store and a regular customer as asked me if I can get
hold of any "solid fuel blocks" for him, they appear to power some steam
models, the kind I had as a kid, a captive engine that drives a little
generator and things...
The blocks appear to be like firelighter type material but are only small
perhaps 1"×1"?".
The gent cannot seem to buy these locally and I was wondering if anyone knew
a mail order supplier I could point him to?
Many Thanks

I remember this stuff, which I think was called "Metafuel", though a Google search on the name now seems to produce nothing relevant.

I used to use something similar for camping (warming up paraffin stoves) is this them:
A quick look around Google came up with 'Esbit' solid fuel tablets. Also you could try loooking up 'Hexamine' - solid fuel used in some camping stoves

There's a solid fuel tablet the Army use for the personal stoves. I think its eco-friendly too. Try thr camping/climbing shops or the Army surplus.
