    A fill line on your propane tank with a valve so that you can refill your 20 lb propane tanks at the house. It has a dip tube to the bottom of the tank to get liquid propane (a wet leg)

    When I purchased my propane tank a few years ago, I made sure it had a fill line. It sure is handy to have. I have 3 20 lb tanks and never run out of propane for cookers or smelter.

    a wet leg is a line with a valve that goes into the "wet" portion of the tank and pulls liquid out. when you get a bbq tank filled they are using a "wet" leg to fill it. normal propane appliances use the gas off the top of the tank. sorry for the thread drift op.

    I've been using normal gas in my Colemans with no problem to speak of for 4 or 5 years.

    I'm another fan of filling off your propane bulk tank. We also have the filler attachment for the BBQ bottles to fill the small 1lb bottles. No more running out of any size bottle.

    Just make sure to use the 100% gasoline, that ethanol **** is hard on the seals

    Non-ethanol unleaded gas is available at y local service station, and is what I run in my pickup. Would no-ethanol unleaded be preferable for Coleman appliances as well? I know a lot of folks who swear it is much better for small engines (lawn mowers, weed eaters and such)

    Yes. Not only can the ethanol attack seals and such (including any brass or copper parts in your stove); it also burns leaner than pure gasoline.

    Not here in NH all has ethanol. To get non-ethanol you have to hunt. Most get the non at the the local small airport but it is Light lead.

    I will buy the Coleman fuel for my stove and lamps, for the difference in price it is worth it to me as I use less than 5 gallons a year. Note I am not THAT thrifty.
