Thanks for all your help with this, I've been looking but haven't purchased one as yet.

I really like the Omnifuel, however camping with the kids I really don't see when I would use it with a liquid fuel so I have seen this gas version, it has a little more power and it's cheaper too at around 65, but as I say it's gas only....

Any good?

What's wrong with using liquid fuel? It's less dangerous than carrying gas cannisters.


I wouldn't go back to using gas now.

How can you say that ? Liquid fuel is just that liquid, and on transfer to any portable stove, can be spilt, Gas canisters are self contained, and just need to be screwed into the cooker !

As for carrying liquid or gas canisters, there is no difference, both are in containers and need to be stored correctly.

Easily-pressurised gas is always going to be far more dangerous than a non-pressurised liquid.
If there's a leak with pressurised gas on a small stove there's nothing you can do about it bar reseat the cylinder (assuming it's a resealable type) -you lose all of it and it's far easier to ignite.

It's a lot easier to accidentally puncture a disposable gas cannister than it is to puncture a proper fuel flask.Also, you can physically check the level of fuel in a liquid stove before you light it so you won't ever need to change a cylinder in the middle of doing something.

Now don't get me wrong, I would really like a multi fuel stove but I just think I would probably use it mostly with gas. There would be no pumping, preheating pouring for fuels etc.

The gas only one is 65 and the omnifuel one is double that and I still have a tent to buy.

But have a look at this video it shows the omnifuel in operation:

I have been using Trangia since a kid(and thats'a long time ago ). Maybe not that sophisticated but pretty bulletproof, it have always work ok in all weather conditions, even in harsh winter. I prefer liquid fuel, but think there is a gas burner kit available also, guess gas burns cleaner than methanol.

That is a really cool looking bit of kit. I want one!
