One of my camp stoves is a rather old coleman liquid fuel stove. I also have a single burner, but that is a different thread.

Do you use liquid fuel or propane, or something else?

Here we are cooking some bacon at my buddies wedding at the beach.

That looks good!!! We use a propane colman stove. We don't use the small green bottles though. I found an attachment that attaches to a 20lbs tank that I can run the stove, BBQ and anything else that runs off of propane all at the same time if needed.

We have the two burner and the one burner that run off of green bottles. I use the one burner to boil a pot of water at every meal for kitchen duties (as it puts out the most BTU's), use the two burner to actually cook (when not using the fire).

I thought about buying a dual burner stove that uses the propane bottles, but decided to keep my liquid stove. Propane is nice, but I have a single burner propane stove.

That coleman stove of mine is 13, maybe 15 years old and still works great. As long as its working I see no need in replacing it.

I also have a 3 burner stove that hangs off the side of the trailer for extra cooking. I don't use it much other than being a shelf for my radio but when we camp with friends it comes in handy.

Only problem I've ever had with a Coleman stove is the one burner type that sits on top of the little green cans. I had 2, and both of them would somehow damage the stem inside the bottle, so that it always leaked afterwards. I have some knock off brand and don't have that problem (and I have no problem with my two burner Coleman that uses the same bottles).

Coleman fuel all the way. It's just ain't hte same to me. I use Coleman fuel stoves and lanterns. (I collect Coleman Lanterns).Nothing much too them. If one gives trouble it's most likely the generator. With a little care even the new ones will last for years.

I've seen this website before!!! I picked up an old 242 chrome lantern at a yard sale for 10.00 with the old aluminum carry case. It had been stored with fuel in it and was gummed up and didn't want to light. I totally rebuilt it, and it looks and works like new!!!
