    My Coleman propane camp stove uses an O ring to seal the joint between the regulator tube and the stove.

    It's a real weak point...everytime I turn around, I'm changing that ring.

    My question: Are all O rings the same, or are there some higher quality (silicone, maybe?) O rings to be had? If so, where would I get one?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Are you using Coleman parts? Seems like they would be the best.

    I tried those, and they don't seem to last any longer than what I pick up at the hardware store.

    All of them crack, and fail, w/in a couple of years.
