yes. the new canisters weigh 356 to 358 grams. gross.
Coleman? i don't think so, but not sure. IIRC Coleman has gone to proprietary systems.
357g=12.59268oz
brand is "North 49". just a package name.

The Coleman screw one fits/works with the Micron fine..I have a couple of those..I weighed one coleman and it is right around 358.One I bought new(wallyworld),the other was $1 at a thrift store..I'll have to hunt up the other tomorrow.
How much time do you figure a cartridge might last?

i had three six night trips this past summer. i started each trip with a full canister. the most fuel i used on any one trip still left about 30 grams of fuel in the canister. i did a lot of cooking that trip and figured it out to about 30 grams per night. on my last trip of the season, in Sept, i used only 18 grams per night.

Any more trips will be overnights so it sounds like I can just grab a stove and go with the canister that's on it!Thanks..I'll try to remember to do some before and after weighing...

I'm going to put them up on craigs tomorrow..I figure there will be a lot of turkey fryers around next week anyway.They also use them for making beer... :mrgreen:
Between brewers and eaters..shouldn't be any problems getting them out of here in a day or so.
Home Depot has the same idea..right now they are $40 and $50..with free shipping on the $50 one! :evil:
