- I recently purchased one of these stoves and after testing it at home, headed for a weekend in the mountains backpacking/camping. I opted out of carrying a gas canister and instead carried the gas bottle with Coleman fuel. The stove is easy to set up, light, and easy to cook with. I used the stove at just over 11,500' elevation and was able to boil 16 ounces of cold (40 degree) water in 2 mins, 45 seconds. I was not able to light the stove with my new Optimus Burny lighter (elevation problem?), but it lit immediately with my Optimus Piezo sparker. I purchased this stove for its versatility in fuels and configurations, and the ease of cleaning in an outdoor environment. This stove gives me one less thing to concern myself with when heading into the backcountry.
Questions & Answers
Thank you for your inquiry.
If using fuel from a gas station for this stove, your best bet would be diesel. However, white gas should always be used if available as it will burn more cleanly and efficiently.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
