Its a misnomer

Today, all gasoline is "white". At one time, lead was added to gasoline to prevent engine knock. Now there is no lead in it and the gasoline is no longer the red/orange it once was. Most people refer to "white gas" as the one gallon Coleman fuel you buy at $5 a gallon. Doesn't make much sense when you can buy it from the pumps at less than $2.


Always Wondered?

I've always wondered if you could use Unleaded Gasoline
in your Coleman Stove without blowing yourself up.
