I bought a jiffy last year I love it!
No fumes!
No mixing gas
Starts first pull
Left it out side with its tank on in -30
Started in 3 pulls
Went on multiple week long trips Nipissing timogami
Run and gunning punching lots of holes
I think I used 3 tanks all year
Canít beat them

That's old technology, I'm using some shaped charge tannerite cans, they make a BIG hole.

All kidding aside, I have both the Jiffy gas and propane augers. The gas auger stays at home, the propane is my choice now. Lots of power, quieter, no fumes and no mixing or carrying gas. The gas is still an excellent choice but I like the propane a little more. My opinion only as you asked for.
