FWIW there are even Colemans that run on kerosene, but those I find are kind of a pita to light up.
Colemans are long lived! Mine are from the late 1940s, and never gave a lick of trouble if kept clean (sort of like a 1911!) And if they do wear, parts are still plentiful and don't cost much. Restoring an old abused Coleman is really quite a bit of fun!

Check out yards sales and Craigs and you can find "Camping Buddies" (how Coleman used to market their lanterns and stoves) for a minute fraction of what the current Coleman Multi-fuel units are going for.
