So, back in the 1970’s when backpacking was a great way to see the country, part of the fun was packing all your gear, setting up camp and eating all those freeze dried meals (some tastier than others). There were several ways to heat (boil) water. My preference  was to use Campgaz in the blue canister. They affixed to the burner which had a sharp point that punctured the canister and then you could turn on the gas and go.
Trouble was once the can was attached, the can had to stay put until it was used up. Not like today’s set ups for backpacking. Today’s are much safer obviously.
To my point, I found my old unit a year or so ago and 3 unused can of gaz. Well, my trip down memory lane has ended, as I used the last of the gaz a week ago on a camp trip. This old euro standard gas stove is a relic.
I know this is a Coleman user/collector site, but I’m sure there might be a few like minded former gaz users who could appreciate this form of heat, fuel mix for outdoor use. 
Have a nice weekend,you all. Stay safe.

I recently was given both lantern and hot plate.  They must of been sold in a set. Neither rings my chimes. Just more junk to throw in da pile!
I have the same setup and been trying to come up with a way to convert it to propane.
The cans are still available in Canada.

I, too, remember those from the '70s, and also have recently been given the stove and lantern.

Unfortunately, I don't recall them with any fondness. Too bulky and heavy compared to a Svea 123 or, later, the MSR stoves (liquid fuel, so more versatile, too), and that non-removable canister never struck my fancy. While working at a teaching camp one year, we did discover a great use for the unused canisters that campers regularly left behind: Put one in the burn barrel and enjoy the mushroom cloud of flames!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I had all sorts of Gaz stuff, stoves, heaters, lanterns... still got a lot of it, and have a pretty good stash of both canisters.
  Is easy to refill em on the appliance if you ever want to relive your youth again.
Coleman still sells the canisters, but just not in the US.   Have you checked Classiccampstoves.com for info on conversion to newer canisters?
