I have an earlier version of this adapter from Century Tool. It has a thumb wheel needle valve that gives fairly precise control of the flame, but the earlier version is unregulated, and so requires periodic tweaking of the control to maintain a constant flame size. That's not as bad as it sounds, because most camp cooking is hands-on with frequent heat setting changes anyway, and one doesn't tend to leave pots on camp stoves to simmer for hours. The tube is steel and the orifice at the tip is yellow brass. There's an extension spring with a hook end that extends to grab the sheet metal of your Coleman stove to keep the adapter from falling out. (Original Coleman liquid fuel tanks hook into the front of the stove and so don't need such a spring.)

I've been using my adapter with a Coleman Model 424 2-Burner Dual Fuel(tm) Standard Compact Stove (Coleman fuel/white gas or unleaded auto gas) for about 10 years, effectively turning it into a Triple Fuel stove. The adapter accepts 1 lb disposable propane cylinders, or can be connected to a bulk propane cylinder by means of a hose, available here at Amazon.com and many camping/outdoor gear suppliers.

The only drawback I've found is that the adapter tends to sag and put pressure on the burner bowl. The hole in the front of the stove through which the gas generator tube from the liquid fuel tank passes is a vertical oval, a bit oversize, and allows the propane adapter a fair amount of angular play, more than it needs. When the stove is going full blast, the bowl gets red hot and softens, and the weight of the adapter tube plus disposable propane cylinder warps the bowl into a saddle shape. It doesn't harm the usability of the stove, but it looks a bit unsightly.

I recently bought 3 Coleman liquid fuel stoves at a thrift store for $10.00. I was able to mix and match parts, and make 2 of the 3 work fine on unleaded gas & Gumout. #3 needs too many parts to be economically repairable, so I decided to take the plunge and order the Century converter.

Guess what? It works! The "generator" tube is even long enough to take the 1 lb. "Fat Boy" disposable tanks, though the 14 oz. slim-line tanks work fine also. Following the instructions on the reverse of the package, fired right up on the first match - excellent flame modulation, easy to start aux. burner. No clue yet as to how long it will burn on a tank. Adapters available on Amazon to either refill the smaller tanks, or run straight off of a 20 lb. bulk tank.

Easier to use than liquid fuel on short camping trips - no cans of fuel, no funnel, no pumping, but all the durability and flexability of your trusty Coleman stove. A great backup/upgrade for your stove.

Strong, well made unit. This thing is not rocket science, but it works. now my Coleman stove can use Coleman fuel, kerosene, gasoline and propane. I use this to modify the stove for use with 1lb cylinders, but I also have a tank adapter and hose that will allow me to use this stove with the larger (40 lb?) tanks. I like options and this gives me a couple more.

I had an old converter that my father bought 40 years ago and it still works, but I wanted a new one. The Century converter is heaver that the old one and the control knob does not take as many turns to open/close. Very happy with it.

Fast delivery, good product, great company to do business with. What else can you want?

Very good converter. Bought it in 2011, but only tried it a year later.

It only has 4 settings from the lowest to the highest.

Here are my results:

* On the lowest setting: 10 minutes to bring 1 quart of water (0.9L) to boiling
* On the highest setting: 5 minutes to bring 1 quart of water (0.9L) to boiling

The weather conditions: 41 Fahrenheit (5 Celsius), little to no wind
Initial water temperature approx 50 Fahrenheit (10 celsius)
Standard 1Lb propane cylinder

This converter works in the sense that it will let you use propane in your Coleman white gas stove, but it does have a critical flaw. There are only four preset knob positions: high, higher, full blast, and flamethrower. Fine for boiling a large pot of water but useless for simmering, frying an egg, or any other cooking that requires a low flame.

After buying this converter (which I now keep as a backup), I also bought the Stansport Propane Converter, which does allow you to finely adjust the flame to any level. (See my review of that product on Amazon.)

Both converters are of equal build quality as far as I can tell. The knob on the Stansport could be a little beefier, but it gets the job done.

Very nice add-on to your Coleman white gas stove [fits all 2 and 3 burner types].......
You can now use a disposable 16oz propane cylinder or with a hose adapter you can connect it to your 20 pounder tank...

I purchased this to work for my Coleman stove and have used it flawlessly for about two propane cylinders. I purchased it mainly as a backup to the white gas. It is pretty stable on the stove, but you need to be able to elevate the stove to allow the canister to hang down below the bottom of the stove. It has been on two camping trips so far and has worked great. It lacks fine tuning adjustment of the burner which I get with the white gas, but I may have to place some markings on the dial to make it a little easier to manage heat. Overall a great purchase, definitely less expensive than buying an entire new stove.
