White gas

White gas is a common name for a number of flammable substances:

  1. As a generic term for camp stove and lantern fuel, its most popular current usage
  2. Pure gasoline (without additives), commonly used when leaded gasoline was the norm to prevent fouling in situations where the properties of the lead additive were not required
  3. Un-dyed gasoline

White gas should not be confused with white spirit, which is more akin to kerosene.
