daul fuel lanterns

5 posts in this topic

I would stick with the white gas unless you are forced to use the alternative. I have a dual fuel lantern and was told the white gas runs much cleaner.

If you enjoy huffing paint and smelling markers, then by all means burn gasoline in it. We were forced to use my lantern for a few days last year in our permanant house and ran gas in it...I think the affects are still lingering. What was I talking about? Oh, yeah, we (or at least I was) feeling kinda funny for a couple days. One of my buddies felt really sick and slept through New Years Eve in his car because of it. The coleman gas burns much cleaner and is better for the lantern.

I just purchased a coleman dual fuel lantern. looking for input on which fuel people perfer. the lantern works great with the coleman fuel, but wondering about running the alternative. this lantern has one single element, not one of the hanging elements but the longer one that fastens at the top and the bottom of the element sock. really impressed on how bright it is. only need one lantern in my 6x8 portable now.

tight lines.......

You will be pleased with that lantern. They are extremely bright. You can run both fuels in them, but I try to stick with coleman fuel if I can. It burns cleaner than gas and the one gallon cans it comes in are easy to tote around. If I don't have coleman fuel around it is nice to be able to just throw some gas in it. Make sure to get extra mantels for it. I haven't looked around recently, but when I first got mine a few years ago the mantels were hard to find.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
