I'm back, this time with pics
Right, I found that you can drain the tank by removing the pump and pouring out through that hole.
I then rinsed it out with petrol and filled it using fresh petrol.
My boil-times aren't much better then with paraffin (Kerosine ), I have got it setup with the Coleman fuel/Gas generator. What could be wrong?
Also, I'm getting a lot of yellow flame and sooting of my pots. See Pics
After ten minutes
After just boiling a pint of water
Is this normal ?
I'm firing it up according to the instructions on the tank
Besides oiling the pump, what other maintenance should I be doing
This Coleman stove isn't what you have, but is setup about the the same.
The red fuel control (feed control seen in the photo with the red knob) may be open too 'wide' that is to say, with the massive flare, you are allowing too much petrol to flow in the preheat cycle. Don't put your pot on the stove until you have blue flame..
After allowing the generator to heat, have you pumped up the tank a second time? Low pressure = low output.
A bit of oil on the pump is fine. If the generator gets fouled, indicated by yellow, sooty flames, you may need to clean it
Step by step directions for generator cleaning**here**
Each stove has it's own personality, based on amount to use, i suppose.
One of my stoves is a bit older
But with a bit of care, works just fine.
The directions are fine, but a bit of tinkering to fine the sweet spot is not unusual.
