In a pinch, a Coleman quick-lite lantern can handle burning most volatile fuels. If you have a kerosene version, you can burn gasoline, paint thinner, kerosene...even #2 diesel if you are really in a pinch.


Kind of figured it would go something like that. I'm not going to be diving into these things as deep as others. But still wanting to learn a bit. I'll probably just keep a can of fuel out in the shed for them. Probably be best. Keep anyone from straight gassing any of my ope. Five gal cans are straight and smaller ones are mix at my place. Be fun filling the stove out of a 5gal can even with a funnel.

Finally got around to burning the kerosene pressure lamp I got from Lance. Running a peerless 111 mantel. Gave it a good preheat with methanol and opened the valve! The kerosene is much quieter than white gas lanterns. Sitting on the porch swing listing to the rain on this warm spring evening.PXL_20230405_011613945.jpgPXL_20230405_012631070.jpg

Very nice! Of all the lanterns i have only two are dedicated kerosene models, one genuine German Petromax and a Coleman 237. Both need gone thru although the 237 would be fairly easy. I need to order the pips, seals, lead washers for the Petromax

Fellas I gotta say, you've got some truly great hobby stuff here. I had a early 70's camp 2 burner that I have maintained for years and some A$$wipe stole it and my lantern from the back of my truck. I keep a weather eye out for yard sales and such to try and find a new project. Best of old memories every time I smell the spent white gas.

Damn, was hoping it would be closer to my travel plans in July I would have brought you a new stove. But if you are willing to pay shipping I'd gladly send you one. Or if you travel and are ever in the St Louis area hit me up and I'll gladly hand one off to you.

Any of you guy’s interested in these? I bought one when down in Arizona years ago and one was found at my dad’s.

Late to the party here, I started collecting Coleman back in 2015 and got some nice stuff at the time but quite quickly lost interest and sold some of my collection off at the end of 2016 when I got married. However I did save a few, one or two of which are quire rare.

Early 1938 (dated A38) Canadian 236, this is earliest dated of this model known to exist, and features on Terry Marsh's website (about 2/3rds down this page): https://terry-marsh.com/coleman-ca-lanterns-1921-1945/

I've also got a 1940's Canadian 530 stove and couple of Military 520's, one 1944 and the other 1945, a Canadian 6-J suitcase stove (1948) plus a Canadian 421-A (late 1960's) which is rough and my main 'user' stove. Fired up the 530 last night:
