I would supply Propane stoves and lanterns to save issues

Kero is finnicky but it is oldschool. I like oldschool

I use unleaded petrol or shellite in my coleman duel fuel stove and northern star lantern.
Unleaded works out realy cheap to run.
About 2 bucks for 8 hours for the lantern

I also just remembered those same liquid fuel stoves can be used with disposable propane via a $15 converter, and connected to bulk propane by adding a hose to the converter. So the same stove could be installed in a semi-permanent bulk propane galley setup, and have backup fuel options.

Looks like at least one version made by Stansport. Can be found on Amazon, Walmart, and other websites by searching "stansport propane converter".
