Angry fire fan

Coleman fuel is basically GASOLINE! What used to be called 'white gas'.

I have a Coleman cookstove and it worked fine for years.

I know the hazards of gasoline, which is why in my tent camping days, I always carried a kerosene lantern. That fuel made a fine fire starter, and the light is less harsh than a gasoline mantel type lantern, not to mention quieter.

This is the kind of fan I use for fanning fires:

Emergency hand held fan powered by two AA batteries - Hand Fans

Works fine, is cheap, small, and lightweight. They are available less expensive than this link.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

Kind of the same thing happened to me but I wasn't the one on the ground.
At a BBQ a guy was going to light the grill. He turned the gas on with the lid closed and I told him keep the lid open until it lights. He didn't and when it blew out a huge ball of fire he ended up on the ground with a bit less hair. As I look back on it I feel bad because I always respected my elders but I went to him and said "what did I just tell you" as he was wondering what happened. I was about 30 then and he was around 60....still feel bad about that and I'm over 60 now.
Every time I light my BBQ I think of him, with the lid open of course
