liquid fuel is best innawoods/survival fuel.
Anyone who relies on propane or canisters for fuel is a damn casual.

I run my shit off kerosene because it has longest lifespan of liquid fuels. Also because I can get it as Jet-A from a local airport for $3.7 a gallon.

Pic related. I acquired a Coleman Kerosene One over the holidays to add to my petromax and cold blast lanterns.

It runs great off 500CP Petromax and Peerless 111 mantles that also fit the petromax styles. Brighter, cheaper, and more durable than those Coleman mantles made of Chinesium. Thorium still king.

It's much easier to start than the petromax, but what isn't? Preheater is a cup opposed to the dish and blow torch type pre heaters the petromax features. Knob really can't adjust the amount of light much but that's more a function of how kero lanterns work. Wish it had a pressure gauge and a way to depressurize the tank other than slowly unscrewing the tank cap. I've heard it it can be run off diesel as well but its not as bright, mantle lasts less and you need to basically clean the nozzle after every tank cause clogs.

  I also got one of these BRS-12a china stoves.

It's made for gasoline but can do a shitton of other fuels too. I run it off of kerosene mixed with some of the E85 I use for preheating.

The quality control on mine was bad and the valve's screw got stripped. i now have to push/pull to adjust flow instead of twist. It comes with a nice multi tool to maintain and disassemble the thing.

  In theory how you preheat and start petromax with the "rapid" preheater.
Lot of work compared to using a preheater cup, but if you don't have alcohol or something for the cup it's great.

I wanna get one of those M1950 gasoline stoves the army fielded from 1951 till the 80s

It comes in a case that can be used as cookware. The lid of which has 2 notches so it can fit the earlier WWII M1942 stove
