Do they still make Coleman lanterns?
Coleman still sells a variety of lanterns that are powered by propane, kerosene, or camp fuel (aka white gas). They are still built in Wichita Kansas (though some parts, such as the globes, are made in China) and are widely available for sale online and in some big box stores.
Can you use kerosene in Coleman lantern?
No, it only works with kerosene. Use of coleman fuel in a kerosene lantern would be extremely hazardous. This is a fantastic kerosene lantern, very bright. Requires preheat with denatured alcohol to light (thus the spirit cup at the base of the generator).
Is Coleman fuel kerosene?
Both are liquid fuels. White gas is also known as naphtha gas or often called Coleman fuel because of the popularity of the well-known brand sold to campers since 1900. Kerosene, sometimes called paraffin, is used not only by campers but internationally is also used for cooking, heating, and aviation fuel.
