Hi to all,

I took this picture over the holiday weekend up on Cedar Key which is just off Florida's Gulf coast, I post it here as I thought it was neat and I have never seen noe quite like it.

Here's the question,can anyone identify its fuel source ?



Regards

Gerry

John, you're right, an old kerosene stove. Here's one for sale in PA. It's only $275, I would have thought a lot more.

Nice find, Gerry.

By the looks of it, they never use it.

White gas...I haven't heard that term in many years. We always used to go get "white gas" for our lanterns to go Flounder gigging.

"White Gas" is now called K1. No dyes are added to K1. It can be used for farm or personal use and get this...Has no taxes added to the cost.

K2 gas is a commercial kerosense. It has a dye inserted and is taxable.

Believe I am correct on this. Someone may want to add more or correct me on this.
