Has anyone used Coleman fuel for mixing two cycle fuel? I have thirty eight gallons to send down the road or put it to use.
Winter gas eats fuel lines and carb parts.
Aint used it in 2 cycle but I use it in a 50-50 mix with 92 octane non ethanol fuel for my antique engines i display and store over the winter. Not supposed to gum up the carb.
Burn it in your T, it's nothing but unleaded gas with no additives. Same stuff Amoco used to sell as white gas. KGB
I would burn it once in a while in my 4HP outboard motor when I was a kid. All I can really remember about it is it ran really hot compared to regular gas.
I have several Coleman products that will burn unleaded gas or Coleman fuel. I have never tried to burn it in a T but it should work. IIRC from looking up the MSDS on Coleman fuel years ago it is Naphtha.
I remember running out of gas one time returning from a hunting trip with Dad. I was in my mid teens at the time. We had a gallon of Coleman stove gas so pored it into the tank. The 67 Chevy 350 pinged when you stepped on the gas, but we made it the last few miles home. Since the Model T was made for a lower octane gas than we now have, they will probably run on it. My only concern is that it may be a little dry, so a little MMO or 2 cycle oil should help with lubricating the Pistons.
If I had 38 gal of white gas I would be selling it! Have you checked the price of Colman fuel? I also have heard that it's "DRY" so would add a lube such as MMO or even diesel.
Think your right Mark! Next summer the tourists will be needing a bunch.
I over bought at a estate sale but it was part of about twenty gallons of new oil from a diesel mechanic who past. Probably should have taken gallons of MMO left there.
In order to be politically correct please refer to the gas as "Caucasian Gas"
I thought it was "Honkey Gas"!
I used to burn it straight in my hit and miss engines, as it never goes bad. That was back when it was like $4 a gallon. Nowadays, I don't know if you can even get it in gallons. Last time I looked for any, I could only find it in quarts and those were ridiculously high in price. Seems like they were $4-$6.
Freddy has it for about 12.00 a gallon. I bought for about 3.00 a gallon. The oil is all high end for 5.00 a gallon. Plenty of consumables for the next few years.
Driving a Renault R-10 north of Flagstaff I ran out of gas. Put in a gallon of Coleman fuel and drove on to Cameron Junction. When I stopped in the Standard station there to fill up the car didn't want to quit. I had to put it in gear and let out the clutch to kill it.
White gas (Naptha) was also used by many municipalities and fire departments in all their small engines. The fuel had a long shelf life and it was ideal for the small low speed engines where detonation was not an issue. It should run fine in a low speed T Ford except where the engine is required to lug excessively then it may detonate.
could use it for solvent also
Very dangerous John----its gas! A friend spent a month in the hospital this summer when putting gas in a lawn mower. Another story near Sisters Oregon two folks were killed when they put gas on a barbeque that would not start.
