Coleman Lantern Fuel
Lanterns consume air so you do not want to use them in an unventilated area. Make sure that where it is placed allows for good air circulation around it especially if you are in an enclosed area.
Some of the Coleman lanterns will allow you to use unleaded gasoline but the fuel that the Coleman company makes for lanterns will give you the best long term results. It has been especially formulated and tested to rigid standards with stabilizer additives for long storage life. It also includes a rust inhibitor to help prevent any corrosion.
Store your fuel in a properly marked metal container and check before a trip so you know you will have enough for the outing. Nothing more annoying than to run out of fuel on your camping trip. Under the stars is quite dark and the moonlight is often not enough to see well enough to move around your campsite without additional lantern light.
Keep the fuel cap on when your lantern is in use. A good rule of thumb is not to loosen the fuel cap if the top of the lantern is warm to the touch. When ready to fill, do that outside so if you spill any of the lantern fuel, it will not be inside your cabin, tent, camper or on any of your gear.
Rinse the fuel tank once in a while with fresh fuel to remove any sediment, gum formations or moisture accumulations. If the lantern is used for standby or only occasionally rinse and refill with fresh fuel every year at the beginning of camping season.
Place your Colman lantern so it has at least two feet of clearance above it and 1 foot of clearance around it. Have any tent tarp that is moveable like the flap for the door, secured so it will not fall on the lantern and have sleeping bags, clothing or any other flammable items away from where your lantern is burning.
