Spring, summer and fall brings the opportunity for lots of outdoor recreational activities.
Keeping yourself, your family and your friends in a safe environment during this time is something that you may or may not consider. This topic usually isn’t on your mind on a daily basis. But it definitely should be as you head off for a vacation.
Whether you ideal trip involves camping, staying in an RV or taking advantage of your own or a rental cabin, safety needs to be on your radar.
In addition to the typical safety concerns like wearing your seat belt, having a helmet when bike riding and using life jackets when necessary, you need to be aware of the proper use of equipment that rely on propane or white gas as a fuel.
“Of particular interest to a service business like ours,” said Jason Rinker, Mountain Flame Propane,
“is how to help properly educate customers regarding the use of propane.”
No matter whether you are camping and staying in a cabin, you will most likely be cooking and using something other than a flashlight at night.
So let’s discuss equipment used for cooking and lighting typically used when on vacation. When you purchase a camp stove, you need to consider the type of fuel that will power the appliance. Your choices will be white gas and propane. Which one is better for camping?
Both of them are petroleum distillates. They are mostly used for lighting and cooking. Although white gas is in liquid form at room temperature, propane is gaseous, stored and transported as a liquid.
