Default New Petrol Stove

The Coleman is a good stove, but is prone to blocked generator tubes if you
burn un-leaded petrol. Much better to use Coleman fuel (very expensive in
the UK, I use lighter fluid/petrol, half the price of Coleman), and
un-leaded petrol gives of all sorts of fumes you really don't want in your
body (cancer causing ).

The Coleman build quality also leaves a lot to be desired; as a stove
collector (and user) I prefer an alcohol/meths burner such as the Trangia,
or a kero burning Primus type stove, both are really built to last. Go the
the Classic Camp stove forum (UK) for information on stoves of all type and

All the best
