    I came across this earlier today at a car boot sale. It's completely as new and hasn't even had fuel in the tank. As can be seen it's a twin mantle, dual fuel (Coleman fuel or unleaded gasoline) lantern. I've no idea what it's light output will be but judging by the size of the mantles, I'd imagine quite bright...

    I think these are a nominal 300 cp. Coleman stopped giving power rates around 2000 because they felt that their customers did not really understand what cp meant. Probably about right too but of course it also prevents any complaints from the likes of me who can actualy measure them. ::Neil::
