GAZ CV270 or CV470 fuel canisters

Post by formertexan » Oct 18 2009 7:51 pm

Does anyone know where GAZ CV270 or CV470 fuel canisters might be acquired in the Phoenix area? These are bright blue canisters that go with GAZ's excellent stoves and lanterns.

It doesn't seem coincidental that Coleman recently bought out GAZ and now GAZ products are disappearing in the US. A fine way to get rid of the competition you can't beat them.

Anyway, thanks for any leads on supplies.

Cheers,
Bill

They used to be available at REI, but I've been told that some REIs no longer carry them. It's worth a call.

You could order through REI and have them delivered to a Phoenix area store for you to pick up. Is there a converter valve for your GAZ stove that would let you use a different gas container. Maybe check with Lindal Valve?

REI does not list gaz canisters on their website, at least that I could see; nor are they listed any longer on the Coleman site.
It's painfully evident that Coleman is 'orphaning' the Campingaz line in North America.
Likely the most prudent action would be to just drop the $20 - $30 on a stove that accepts the threaded canisters and be done with it.

Thanks to all of you folks for your suggestions. REI is out - thats what prompted my post. The fitting/adaptor looks as if it result in a somewhat awkward/unstable arrangement. Ebay seems like a possbility. Haven't done the Ebay thing before, but will give it a whirl.

After 3 decades of invariably dependable use over 3 continents and several islands where I've always been able to readily find fuel and mantels even in out of the way places, it seems a shame to dispose of fine equipment. This experience sure cures me of ever buying anything Coleman again.

Cheers, Bill

To be honest it would not have made sense for Coleman to have competed against itself.. as such pretty much discontinuing GAZ products made sense.. a bummer, but man I really disliked all the randomly different fuel canisters out there. Especially when traveling.

I believe that the GAZ, campinggaz line will remain available outside of North America - Would it be possible to retain your stove/lantern for use outside of N.A.? I realize that having one stove for N.A. and one for other environs is cumbersome, but at least it would still be of some use. (Not to mention that, as it stands, the threaded canisters are much harder, if not impossible, to find than GAZ when outside N.A.)

for what it's worth the big 5 had some non-threaded GAZ canisters when I went and got my tree permit Saturday.

Some people only have two stoves?

Thanks to everyone for the feedback and suggestions. I did manage to procure enough through eBay to keep me going while I hopefully work out a supply route from somewhere else.

Hearing the chat about multiple stoves leads me to believe that a lot of people have been missing out on the virtues of GAZ.

Happy camping.

Bill,

Next time you're near a Sports Chalet look in there. I saw the GAZ (blue) canisters Oct 30th in the store 101 & Raintree, North Scottsdale. FYI

I have a GAZ stove which uses a threaded mount. I spoke with REI and they said they do not carry this anymore. However, I was wondering if anyone new if my stove would hook up to another similar canaster that colman makes? I currently use CV270 GAZ.

Some REI locations still have those. I've seen them at various other outfitters around the country in recent times, but they're getting harder to find since Coleman bought them out. You might have better luck searching for Coleman 270.

Is Coleman 270 compatiable with the old CV270?

@azpynebox I figure they probably are, but I haven't looked closely since I don't use that stove myself. I'll check my local places the next time I'm in.

Not necessarily true, any outdoor store I have been to in Italy carries the threaded canisters. Can't speak for other places though.

Yes, they are. They look just like the old ones, including the label, but they something like "distributed by Coleman". It's interesting that my local REI carries the older CV206 cartridges, but not the CV270.

Does anyone have current information on the availability of these canisters? Any that will work with the older GAZ stoves? Thanks much.

I saw a bunch of those somewhere. Wish I remembered where. Pinetop Sporting Goods carried them long after everyone else had stopped. The old mom n pop places are your best bet.
