If you trip and fall or the latern falls, the gas can spread very easily and the flame spreads almost as quick. For hiking, the battery operated or canister propane is the best option. Although I will admit, on the issue of the environment, I really don't like the canister propane.
you would use propane??? that is more dangerous than a white gas STOVE. if you bump the propane, it can explode, it will also spread when it gets close to flames, in fact it explodes.

Due to danger of leaks and spills (both accidentally and purposely) there are rules that must be followed when using white gas.

I'm sorry the original thread does state "stove", now how I came up with lanterns is beyond me?
I take an additional precaution of containing the bottle within another container (I use a large, zipable bottle insulator) so that any trace amounts of fuel that may have spilled on the outside of the bottle are contained.
