Thanks for all the info!

Yes, I have since found 4 mantles for 6.45, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-Coleman-Instaclip-mantles-for-Coleman-282-285-and-295-Powerhouse-lamps/263684422286?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I tried cheap copies but found the originals to be far better - the current pair i've got fitted have lasted for quite a while now  :Dancing-Chilli1group:


I find that mine doesn't like running on paraffin and petrol at the same time, lol. I may try panel wipe but seems nice and bright on unleaded as Ian says!

Has anyone tried ethanol or IPA (isopropyl alchohol, not beer)? I can get unlimited supplies of those.... but i'd imagine they are far too thin and would just turn into a massive flare

cheers
