Pre propane, Companion made little camping stoves which ran on kerosene, preheated with methylated spirits/alcohol(we call it"metho") in the collar/cup surrounding the nozzle.Blowtorch was similar. Metho stoves on boats use metho for preheat and for fuel.
To use those planes at night you`d need to use a Tilley pressure lamp with the fragile mantle, not one of those new fangled electric light thingies.
