More in the for what it is worth: Our council has implemented a
NO LIQUID FUELS for other than intended purposes attitude. ie
Coleman GASOLINE goes in lanterns and stoves and NOT on fires or torches,
etc. NO liquid lighter fluid, or charcoal starter is permited. ALL
fuels have to be in properly marked containers, and stored OUTSIDE
in a marked area etc. SAFTY first.
Also, you (even adults) have to attend a liquid fuel training course and
get a card to certify your knowledge of rules and safty. Then you
can use the fuels and teach scouts (first class or above I believe)
the proper use of both propane and gas equipment. I believe all
liquid fuels operation still must be supervised by a certified adult.
I think I still prefer propane with large tanks in BASE camp and
gasoline type for trail, or canoes. I don't like to pour gas, it
always seems to drip !!!
Don I, fully RE-trained after the University of SCouting!
