New to the site here and looking to see where I can obtain some information on what fuel (kerosene or white gas) each Coleman Lantern model takes.  Thanks!

Well I mean, I don’t know for sure, but if it has a preheated cup, it’s probably for kero, and if it doesn’t, it’s for white gas. 
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is
”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

Unless it was used in cold climates.  I've found preheat cups on most of the white gas only lamps I've gotten from Canada.

Well in Canada that makes sense, it’s like match lite, but it’s alcohol lite so that it will burn easier in cold weather. However, we know that a lantern with no preheat cup, it should be cf only.

So what are you looking for? I like kero burners but I color outside the lines when it comes to fuel with mine.

I’m looking to stick with a white gas lantern as it’s easier to find than kerosene and doesn’t foul up the inner workings like unleaded gasoline.

For a beginner white gas lantern I recommend a 200a. They're a classic, they look great, run great, easy to work on, parts are easy enough to find. I wish I'd started with one.
And welcome to the site btw!

A 220E which is not as easy to work on so say the least.

Hey same here. Well, it was a 228e. It’s a complete nightmare. I regret the things I did to that poor lantern. 😬
