An unnecessarily primitive list

Alladin oil lanterns for light? Substitute super-efficient LED headlights/lanterns with a store of alkaline batteries over drums of expensive lamp oil. Clean white reading/task light, no fire risk, no messy lantern filling, maintenance & smell, no comsumption of indoor oxygen. Add eneloop NiMH rechargable batteries and a solar charger for when sun is available.

Propane heating heads on portable tanks? You must be joking. Extreme fire & contact burns risk, no indoor use, noisy, burn tons of oxygen, adds heavy humidity, heavy fuel use. If you must use propane get more efficient catalytic portable heaters (but really, a woodstove ok?)

Coleman/kerosene cooking? Use rocket stoves, they work great on twigs!:
