UK Colemans Duel fuel...

toppa

Posting Guru
The other month i bought myself a colemans 533 duel fuel, wanted to fire it up so i filled it with unleaded petrol, which burns a treat but burns dirty and smells, so today i went and bough myself some of the good stuff (colemans fuel), is there anything i need to know about changing the fuels over??

Ie drain the unleaded....


Cheers
 
you'll be ok just putting the new fuel in it'll probably work better if you do drain the petrol off first and the new fuel will start to clean the stove instantly and will get rid of most of the soot built up from the petrol.

NO you didn't clean her:eek:

AJs spot on with the jet only use the large one for heavy fuel like parrafin diesel kerosine and good luck starting if you do.
 
If you can lay your hands on any, Avtur is also very good ina Coleman stove.
Takes a bit of getting going but boy, does it get hot.....white hot in places. :D
 
I always use petrol too in my 533. but the shop did say that i should run some coleman fuel through it every so often to prevent deposits building up in the jets a regulator. but after a few years service it seems to have no drop in performance. But as mike says mine does a lot of work boiling large kettles of water. so it's on full chat for about an hour at a time so i guess there isn't a chance for it to get gummed up.
