The burners on standard issue Coleman white gas stoves are 9,000 and 11,000 BTUs and the two on the Wind River Range were 15,000 each on white gas.

Oh, yeah, and you can still get parts for a Coleman 425A (the current classic 2-burner is a 425F I think) from 1948. I got a burner rebuild kit for my 425B from 1952, although the tanks are not available and so once they rust up they are toast. But the current tank works fine in the old stove.

I thought you were the one all about old iron!

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
