Just use unleaded gas. Its 10x cheaper than the fancy white Gucci gas.

"Dual" fuel. A "duel" is a competition or fight.

You can use the Coleman camp fuel or unleaded gasoline.
The problem with unleaded is it burns black. Unless you want to clean the black crap off your pots and pans, stick to the white fuel. Yes, it's expensive, but how much of it do you really use? One gallon of the white fuel lasts me and my party (6 to 8) for two weekends of 3 days and 2 nights. We use 2 dual fuel stoves (3 meals a day) and 2 dual fuel lanterns (burning all night).

I think the white gas burns blacker than the unleaded. I have a thick coat of black on my skillet after using white gas.

Well, he's asking about a lantern, so I don't think soot on your pans is an issue :D
