Do not forget that gasoline has many additives that are carcinogenic (cancer causing) including but not limited to the following ;
Benzine
Toluene
Xyline
Ethenol
Methynol
Methyl tertiary butyl ether
Methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT) (Canada & Australia)
Lead - 0.013 g P/L
Sulfur
Phosphorus - 0.0013g P/L

There are over 200 poisonous additives in gasoline, when burned in a lantern or stove they are emitted as fumes, please do not run these appliances indoors !

Every year I receive a publication from Mobil and the Federal government on the toxicity of gasoline, it is 350 pages long !

Please read this

I am tested for toxicity on a yearly basis because I have been working in the Automotive field for thirty years and am in constant contact with such poisons, please do not take this lightly.

Running your lantern outside where there is plenty of ventilation is fine, I never cook with gasoline, I only use Coleman fuel in my stoves in fear of poisoning my food.
