Greetings all,  

A question:  Every outdoor store in America sells small bottles (usually green) of propane.  They energize stoves, lanterns, heaters, etc.  Is there a way to use those devices with a standard propane bottle, like the one on my bar-b-que?

Thanks,

Dave

Welcome DEMO49,

I'm not sure I completely understand your question.

Are you asking if propane fueled camping lanterns, stoves, etc. can be hooked up to the larger 20 lb. propane tanks?

If so, the answer is yes you can, but you need the right equipment.

You will need a Coleman high pressure propane hose with built in adapter.

Hi,

Exactly.  In the spirit of preparedness, I thought it might be useful to own whatever was necessary to allow the extended use of the lantern, heater and stove I already own.  Thanks for your prompt and helpful response.

Coleman also made (makes?) an adapter that does the reverse. It connects 2 of the small green canisters together and you can use them in place of a 20lb tank.

welcome to Trailspace DEMO49,

When setting up a basecamp or car camping for any length of time I like using a propane tree with a hose. The tree attaches to the 20lb tank then attach lantern to the top and use hose(s) for a Stove or Grill
