Do Not Use White Gas (coleman Fuel)
I have a two burner (non-pressure) Origo stovetop. However, I'm having a hard time finding someplace that carries cooking alcohol to fuel the stove.
Can I simply use de-natured alcohol that's available at the hardware store in the paint section? The broker told me to get "soot free" alcohol, but I haven't found any anywhere.
Does anyone know if I can use white gas (Coleman Camp Fuel) in the Origo stove? The Camp Fuel seems to be available just about everywhere for very reasonable prices.
Coleman Camp Fuel (white gas) is highly combustible and should NOT be used in your Origo stove. Stoves that use Coleman Camp Fuel use a pressurized tank (usually a manual pump) and deliver the fuel in a controlled atomized feed. Using it in an Origo non-pressurized stove will result in an explosion and likely severe burns (or worse) and property damage.
