Maybe I did something wrong but the one I had borrowed would periodically spew fuel all over the place. Had an interesting evening on a motorcycle trip after a full day of riding in the rain. We really wanted something hot to drink but didn't want to venture out of our motel. Fire only needs three things, right? Ignition source, oxygen and fuel. We met all three conditions quite well.

Thanks Bob. That looks almost like the one we've had for 25 years. The low flame control is pretty poor on it.

Maybe the burners have been improved, or maybe it's worn out.

I'll have to compare it to your picture.

The only real change I noticed is the burner. Tonight or tomorrow I'll fire it up and see how much control there is at the lowest settings. Haven't used it since last spring.

FWIW, using 2C water in a 1qt sauce pan, I could not get it below a low boil without the burner going out. No idea if that proves anything at all.

Usually excess fuel spilling out is caused by over pumping. Instructions call for pumping 25 times and then light. After lighting, you may need to pump up to 50 pumps depending on level of fuel.

I gave up on Coleman a while ago—poor simmer control and low BTU output. Now using a Camp Chef Everest 2 burner propane stove. Each burner is said to put out 20,000 BTU and the simmer control is very good. Those 20,000 BTU come in handy when cooking a couple of lobsters in a big pot of water on a July afternoon in Maine (It would take forever on a Coleman). The high temperature and a cast iron griddle make a great combo for a couple of rib-eyes too.

Instructions are for after the disaster, not before

That was a hundred bucks amazon prime. Not bad. I think I will keep my rusty trusty coleman for now. It is a problem, like 10 times a year and spend the hundred on something more important.

a friend of ours has a Camp Chef Campers Combo stoveRainier Campers Combo - Stove/Grill/Griddle | Camp Chef and loves it. With 3 burners in the escape I was looking for gas BBQ but this might be a nice compromise vs. the Weber Q, etc.

I purchased the Volcano grill last week based upon recommendations here and elsewhere. I used it for the first time last weekend and am very impressed. It is very well made, fuel efficient and versatile. I look forward to trying many recipes. This is our first "Escape purchase" in anticipation of placing our order this summer and delivery in the summer of 2015.
