The canisters they show look funny..The one I have looks like the old coleman fuel ones..but painted red with Prepo on it..I think what they show on the stove is just an outer sleeve the can slides into that had some type of screw mechanism on the back end that pushed it into the valve needle and held it there..
Somewhere I have pictures of the dual burner Prepo stove..looks more like a marine stove.It's still sitting in the shop area in the box covered with ukulele dust.I keep running into it when i dig in that corner for something else...
