In this article we deal with f-conformal Killing vector fields, a generalization of conformal Killing vector fields involving a function f and two real parameters. Under certain conditions on f and the parameters, some non-existence results for such vector fields are proven. Moreover we derive a generalization of the Kazdan-Warner and Bourguignon-Ezin identities to the case of f-conformal Killing vector fields. Based on these, finally we present an application to the f-conformal solitons, a generalization of the Yamabe solitons.
