Which continent[edit]

"Petromax is a brand name, for paraffin lamps that use a mantle, they are as synonymous with the paraffin lamp on the continent as Tilley lamps in the UK and Coleman in the US. (Paraffin is called kerosene in the USA.)"

Now, "the continent" links to continental Europe. UK and US equivalent names are also mentioned. So, is it meant that Petromax would be some kind of common name to those three names? Since it's never said where that name is used. Petromax is the one I've heard talked about here in Northern Europe. (talk) 19:17, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
