I have two of the Coleman white gas lanterns and I love them, I can adjust the light really bright or turn them down really low, they last for several hours on a tank of gas, even with electricity available I prefer the gas lanterns. I really like the ambience they provide.

I used a white gas Coleman lantern for years while tent camping (along with a 2-burner white gas stove). When I bought my first trailer, I'd take it with me out of habit, but rarely used it. I purchased a battery-powered flashlight/florescent lantern/emergency flasher combination several years ago, and haven't used the Coleman since. It will light up the picnic table or porch with a nice soft light, but also makes a handy flashlight for doggy runs in the middle of the night, or for changing a flat at night along the side of the road. Uses 6 D-size batteries, which you can buy anywhere, and they'll last an entire season (if I remember to shut it off before storing it). Also makes a great emergency light when the power goes out at home.

And, there's no gas/propane smell or CO.
