I do know that most reputable marinas sell regular unleaded gas without any alcohol in it. Its best to ask first. Also the price will be significantly higher than gas station prices.

No pics. I compared the screw head with a lantern CLX model and they look the same.
Valve assy is Coleman.
My question is ---- is the screw meant to be a self tapper? The threads are very fine. And I'm afraid to force anything until I find out. I don't want to cross thread any.
