They priced it..I paid what they asked..is it my fault they didn't know what it was? :lol: I told you I didn't wear the mask today. ;) (didn't have to.. :mrgreen: )
I don't argue about their prices at that store unless they are really ridiculously high..like all the stuff they put in the "collectible"s case..priced at mint ebay prices...Most is nothing near mint..There's a couple ladies that price there that think everything is a gold mine!The rest of them price stuff to move it!

Yeah..I wouldn't have argued at $6 either..now $8 I might have!.. :mrgreen:

It does have a tarnish spot like it got some water down in front near the bottom on one shot.If I polish it,Zelph will give me some crap about "removing its character"... :lol:

Zelph,can I remove the $4 sticker? :lol: It still has the original one of $24.95!

Oops!Got a question..It appears it's still got the first full tank of white gas in it!..filled to the brim.They might have just tested it by the looks of it.I saw one small wisp of soot about 1/8" up one side of the top,wiped it off with my finger.Anyway..would it be better to leave it full and the seal wet on the cap?..or empty it out..or empty it and burn the gases out of it or what?..to store it long term.The cap gasket seems great as it is barely tightened and not leaking at all..like new.What would you do(besides seal it in wax..)?

Coleman fuel be ok left in tank be ok. but never full tank to the top just 3/4 full.Now if kept in house best to empty tank let air out. If you ever need to fire i can help you to do it.There is a good way bay way my way :lol: :lol: Plus there more then meets the eye like 2 burnt fingers.Oh never us reg gas only in a pinch
