White gas is a common name for a number of flammable substances:

  1. As a generic term for camp stove and lantern fuel, its most popular current usage, also called Naphtha, 100% Light Hydro Treated Distillate, or Coleman fuel[1]
  2. Pure gasoline (without additives), commonly used when leaded gasoline was the norm to prevent fouling in situations where the properties of the lead additive were not required
  3. Un-dyed gasoline

White gas should not be confused with white spirit, which is more akin to kerosene.
