Best deal I've seen on this plus free shipping - normally they are going for ~$100. Extremely bright camping light, can run on unleaded gasoline or coleman fuel (naptha/white gas).

I've have owned one of these for about 15 years so I'll answer some of the stuff:

- It runs on white gas and gasoline.
- It burns far cleaner with white gas, so I would never recommend gasoline unless that is all you have. With gasoline it it a little fume-y, and it flares up a little more. White gas burns super clean.
- The main reason for one of these over propane is that they are just cooler. Propane is still pretty cheap, it's easier to use and handle, but I like the liquid fuel better. It flickers a bit and I enjoy pumping it up. It is cool to see the light brighten and dim with pressure.
- 40 pumps will last several hours. I never feel inconvenienced by this. It really lasts an incredibly long time.
- You'll have to carry a little funnel and a liquid tight container of fuel, vs. just a propane tank.
- You definitely want the case. That is a huge selling point, because otherwise bumps will break the glass or knock the mantles off.
- You can buy white gas at Academy for $5-7 per gallon. That will probably last you years unless you use it on the porch or something.
- Consider what fuel you want in a camping stove, because it is inconvenient to have different fuel types.
- Liquid fuel systems are more complicated, more expensive, and more fun to use.

Nothing at all like kerosene. Similar to gasoline.

Have this lantern, works really well. Cheaper to run than propane ones. The propane one is slightly brighter I think but this one puts out a lot of light still. Have to manually pump it up but goes a long time on a few pumps

Not sure I need this but I think I might buy it. I don't go camping or really have a use for lanterns at the moment, any need for light if the power goes out can be supplemented with the 20 or so flashlights I've purchased from deals on SD.

I think I may have a problem, I may need help.OMG

This is very old technology. I believe coleman fuel is sorta like kerosene. Lanterns in past were lit by kerosene. You had to pump them first.

Older lanterns where always white gas never kerosene although a couple good kerosene lanterns are good to have. White gas runs around $5 per quart. This lantern has a big plus running on unleaded gas @ $2.00+ per gallon. Very bright dependable lantern and super cheap to operate.

Would this lantern be safe to use indoors?

Thxs for that perspective. Makes sense now. Also read that kerosene lanterns are a bitch to light requiring priming, pumping, then lighting. Kerosene is more related to diesel. Heavier gas that does not evaporate easily. However, kerosene is safer indoors due to that reason. The propane canisters are also safer. Not recommended to manipulate gasoline indoors with this.

PS- Amazon just priced matched.

Yes, just be careful where it is placed. hang from the ceiling is best but anywhere away from non flammables.

Kerosene and lamp oil are very safe but do not give the amount of light white gas/unleaded will give. never seen a kerosene lamp that needed pumping. I have 2 antique kerosene/lamp oil i keep filled for power outages. 100+ yrs old and work perfect.

That one is not dual fuel from what I can see.

But it does seem brighter and runs on propane only (cheaper than the Coleman Fuel). Will this might be a better option for those that use these lanterns less often (keeping propane tanks around instead of liquid fuel)?
