This is not my first Stansport kerosene lantern. It's actually my third. I bought the first one on impulse on my way camping one day several years ago, and it "leaked." I exchanged it for another one at the store where I bought it, and that one "leaked." Fast forward a few years, and I've learned a bit about kerosene lanterns and I wondered if the "leaking" wasn't just improper usage on my part. So I just bought this one.
I took it out of it's packaging, inspected it for any obvious problems, and there were none. Then I removed the globe (pull up on the tab at the top of the lantern-that's not a hook for hanging) and the wick burner so there was room for a funnel. I added 4 oz of kerosene from a measuring cup through a funnel, with the lantern sitting in a big stainless steel mixing bowl. I did this so I could be sure I didn't spill any kerosene, and I didn't over fill it. You really don't need to go to these lengths). I trimmed the wick to straight and flat across, and then replaced the burner and the globe. After lighting it, I let it warm up and then adjusted the flame.
An hour later, no leaks. It works fine.
I think this explains my previous leakage problems (I filled them up all the way), as well as leakage of most of the reviewers here. The main issue is that this is 125+ year old technology. You can't just turn it on. You have to use it properly and give it a bit of maintenance. This lantern, or a version costing five times as much. That's both the charm and the challenge of these lanterns.
Having said that, it's not as nice as a Dietz or a Feuerhand. The globe is a bit wavy, and the wire used for the globe lift was cut so that it leaves a sharp end. The paint doesn't look like it would hold up for a long time outside.
But it's an $8 lantern, and as such, it works. For my money, I'd rather spend the extra $5 and get a Dietz, but if your price/value calculation is different, you may be happy with this.
DO NOT BUY THIS LANTERN. The chances of you "getting a good one" are exceeding low. Read all the one-star reviews. I should have done so, and been cautioned.
1. One of them came with the glass broken. (It was broken during manufacturing because it was wrapped in shrink wrap and the broken piece was missing entirely.)
2. The “Stansport” brand sticker along the bottom is practically impossible to get off. It peeled off in tiny pieces leaving that annoying/ugly sticker residue.
3. I ordered two red lanterns and they’re two different shades of red. Not a huge issue for me, but I’m pointing it out in case this would bother someone else planning to buy more than one.
Unfortunately my party is today, so returning or exchanging isn’t an option.
I’m not thrilled with this purchase.
Wick is just ca1/4" wide so fuel consumption is minimal making it ideal for a survival light source. It will leak around the chimney connects to the fuel tank if over filled or if not sitting vertically when fuel tank is full. Fuel storage tank is not leaking around the bottom rolled seam. When filled to fill line at top of straight portion of tank, it burns for ca2 days with wick exposure set to the minimum that will allow a flame across the entire width of the wick. This consumes ca4oz of fuel - that is 2 months/gallon for 24x7 burning or a year/gallon @ 4 hours/nite. Not bad!
Due to its wind-proofness am getting another to repurpose as a candle 'hurricane' lantern.

If you're buying these for decoration ONLY then they are fine. But to actually put lamp oil in and TRY to burn. Definitely NOT worth the money.Read more
