Re: So why is the 275 called…

If the 275 were made in red, they would be the most sought after lantern in the world. I know. I have a red one. It's in my bomb shelter with my 14 Garands and the old Buick Y Job. I'm set.

Honestly, the best way to clean a gas tip is with the tip cleaner specific to the generator. If the generator has no tip cleaner associated with it, then use a fine wire like a guitar string, depending on the size of the gas tip.
