    Notice the older safety valve/fuel cap on tank which could be a Generation 2 Campingo 1 with a later generation 3 Campingo burner fitted as new or later.This is the way I recieved it except for a flush, polish and a new nipple fitted.

    The White Gas/Coleman fuel burner is shown running comfortably on kerosene.Safer with the safety valve pip having been replaced with a more modern pip.

    Lovely stove! I wish tey were as common in the Uk as they seem to be in NZ!

    These should work on kero & gasoline.

    Hello Ross.
    It does go well on both fuels.
    This one is the 3rd one I have owned.It has since been sold on to a New Zealander as with another one that has gone to a collector in Japan.
    I sold it on to buy new old stock spare parts for other stoves.
    They don't really fetch good prices in New Zealand but it could be different now as there have been more collectors around recently.Cheers

    This is the one that went to Japan.
    Check out the very good condition alcohol container that came with it-it was well preserved.
