    I believe I have one of those in my camper at the deer lease.
    Last full size gas refrigerator I saw was in the 70's. My father-in-law had one. He was also the president of Lone Star Gas. Only thing that bothered him was he still had to plug it in for the dang light!!

    Not new or old, they are still manufactured today. There is one in nearly every RV and I think Servel is still in business. I guess it's just whichever fossil fuel you think is best.

    When I lived in Belize, I had a kerosene refrigerator for a while. It worked well.

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    As an aside, but on the same subject, anybody ever run into a gas air conditioner unit?

    Last one I saw was about 20+ yrs ago. Worked like a champ until servicing them became an issue. Rule of thumb became none reparable only replaceable with new freon based system.

    When you went to replace them it was common to take the old unit out. Put it in the back of a open truck. Cut the line and drive down the road to disperse the ammonia gas in the system.

    Interesting!
    Kind of ironic that the company name is derived from "Serving Electric".
