The Swap from Gas To Dual Fuel Stoves

Mar 012019

After much deliberation we decided to make the swap from Butane gas stoves to dual fuel. A fear of pressurized bottles pushed us to make the change. We are now running a Coleman 424 stove, I have really taken to this stove. If you follow the correct lighting procedure its easy to light first time. The first time we used Coleman fuel but at £8.00 per litre we soon changed to the camping forums recommended Aspen 4 fuel.After much deliberation we decided to make the swap from Butane gas stoves to dual fuel.

Coleman Fuel

The Coleman® Liquid Fuel is all you need for running a variety of applications in the outdoors. Coleman Fuel is a mix of petroleum naphtha with a bit of rust inhibitor, formulated and manufactured solely by Coleman.

It has an octane rating of 50 to 55 and none of the additives found in gasoline, so causes less dirt build up and so less stive maintenance.
Formulated especially for Coleman liquid fuel appliances and with a lighter molecular weight than gasoline, kerosene and diesel fuel, it cannot be used as a substitute for any of those fuels, and would burn out the valves of a gasoline engine if used.

Aspen 4 is the cleanest petrol that you can use. Aspen is made from alkylate petrol which is made from the gases from the top of the distillation tower which are synthetically modified into a liquid again.

Aspen is free from ethanol,sulphur,solvents,olefins & benzene.
