I'm sure there is some of the old "playing with fire" curiosity pushing this, but I'm using my lanterns so much as reading lights that the neighbors probably wonder if I have power. (I met a neighbor kid the other day that thought my house was vacant, so I must be doing something right.) I would love to be able to sit outside with a silent Aladdin mantle lamp on the table, but the slightest breeze is troublesome to them. After using Coleman gas lanterns outside for so long it's become as natural as flipping on a light switch, I got my first Coleman 237. At 500CP that big single mantle kerosene monster made reading outside by the fire an absolute pleasure. (See my post on Too Much Light) The hiss, initially annoying, now often lulls me to sleep. The preheat learning curve with kerosene lighting (and cooking appliances) is a little steep, especially working with old worn out lanterns, but they can be tamed. At $4.00 a gallon for kerosene compared to $11.00 for Coleman white gas I can afford to keep the lights on all the time now. I've even very successfully converted a cheaper Coleman 220H into a Coleman 231 clone. Any other Coleman, Petromax, Aida, Hipolito kerosene pressure lamp users out there?
