I have tested alcohol fuel out in a Coleman lantern and if it is mixed with some sort of petroleum type fuel there are no problems. I also have several alcohol stoves that I run for camping. The next phase of my testing is to mess around with it in the multiburner Coleman camp stoves. I am just a bit sketched out until I see it working at someone else’s expense first. My multifuel Coleman camp stove works well with it, though.
The other part of my “messing around” with distillation is the essential oils aspect. Today I got my glass separator thing in the mail. I hope to get some time to the play with extracting essential oils after the holidays.
