Looks like an American folly, but, no...
Made in Japan-
It's a copy of Doc's Gerry Infrared stove.
I can't figure out the burner type. What fuel does it run on?
I would assume petrol (gasoline).
All catalytic heaters I've seen this far uses petrol.
If it's what I think, it's camp fuel (Naphtha) ONLY. Works the same way the "Johnny" hand warmers work I believe. Petrol would ruin the catalytic element from what I have read. Just like the Colemans-
The "Old Town Yucca" link is gone, so the instructions for these things have to found elsewhere, but I know it says to NEVER put gasoline (petrol) in them. At least not U.S. petrol.
Absolutely. Should have been clearer, but I assumed that it went without saying for both lanterns and heaters like these (and catalytic ones are really sensitive) to not use regular petrol!
I use alkylate petrol for my catalytic heaters, and haven't noticed any problems yet, but perhaps time will proove me wrong.
Here are the instructions from Old Coleman parts.
Not the same heater but same principal.
Are your catalytic heaters still operating just fine on the petrol you mentioned ?
