Doubtful today’s i-generation could replace the mantle...there ain’t an app! Hell the guy at the oil change told me most can’t find the hood release.I am still using a Coleman 425 double burner stove that has been in the family for about 50 years. In all that time I have had to do zero maintenance on it. I have had a single mantle Coleman white gas lantern for better than 40 years. I carry about 10 extra mantles for it, but often go 2-3 seasons without having to change one out.
That's good to know-Coleman used to sell a generator for gasoline and some of their later stoves and lanterns would run on either auto-fuel or Coleman fuel and were sometimes labeled "Dual Fuel". I've been looking for one of the the conversion generators but haven't seen one for decades, perhaps because unleaded gas is okay in them?I remember buying white gas from a pump at out "Flying A" gas station. Leaded gas would foul the generator in the Coleman stove and produce lead fumes to breathe. Modern unleaded gas does not seem to foul the generator of my stove.
