A friend recently purchased a new can of flammable liquid to do his fire eating act with and we noticed it's now a pink-ish hue, not the blue tint it once was. It also tastes different. (Still better than lighter fluid)

Does anyone know if they have changed their formula? Is it safer, more dangerous, or pretty much the same?

On a side note - I wonder if the people at Coleman know that there are performers using their product for fire eating and have looked into ways to make it safer for the body?

Taste funny how? Like a clown? Or is it "ha-ha" funny tasting? Did you check the expiration date? You can tell its bad if it curdles in your hot coffee. The thread has no taste.

Oh how could I miss the two cannibals eating a clown .... One turns to the other and says "Does this taste funny to you" joke!!!!


And how is Coleman’s supposed to taste? Do the makers really care how it tastes?

Not to fuel this discussion...I don't want it to get too heated.

My first question would be what you are storing it in? If it is a metal that could corrode you may get a red tinge from the oxidation. Second would be, is it really the manufacture you mentioned, and did you by it in the states. Note that at one point in time camping stoves in the UK ran on a diesel fuel, known as "red fuel" or "DERV".

With that said, I don't condone using any of the mention for other than what it is intended for.

Good point. I guess my third question is, are you consuming the Coleman Fuel and storing it in your bladder? You might not want to pee near an open flame! That could bring all new meaning to, "It burns when I pee."!

First off, not a novice, just to clear anything up. This was right off the shelf at Wal-mart fresh. My friend in another state also noticed the change in hue. It is indeed made by who I said.

I love how someone can ask a serious question on here and get a thread full of nothing. You guys crack me up.

I think part of the problem is you asked a question the site says isn't supposed to be discussed.
