Neat packing lightweight backpacking stove (a multifuel version of the Primus Express Spider Stove) with a remote canister that can run on either canister gas or unleaded petrol/white gas. A great camping stove for those who mainly want to use gas cylinders but would like to be able to switch to petrol in colder conditions or when nothing else is available.
The remote canister design is more stable than “sit on top” stoves, with its lower centre of gravity, The curved pre-heat tube that runs adjacent to the burner gives better performance in cold weather. It is also safer, when running the stove with LP gas, because the burner is less prone to flare up if the stove is accidentally knocked over when lit.
It can also be run on paraffin (kerosene) in an emergency but the fitted jet should be replaced with a Primus 22 Kerosene Jet (not supplied but we can obtain one for you).
It is sold complete with a fuel pump, stuff bag and an aluminium heat reflector, but a fuel bottle is not included (NB: Use only a Primus 0.35lt or 0.60lt fuel bottle).
The stove is unusual in design in that the jet is not situated under the burner but is at the end of the preheating tube and undoes with the spanner on the multitool supplied.
It is essential that the correct jet is in place for the fuel being used:
Jet 32: Gas Canisters.
Jet 28: Petrol/Gasoline/White Gas (Coleman Fuel).
Jet 22: Paraffin/Kerosene (not supplied).
If burning unleaded petrol, or worse, paraffin, sooty deposits will build up that will eventually block the preheating tube. To avoid this happening we suggest burning white gas every third fill of the fuel bottle.
Running time: 140 minutes on a 0.35 litres of white gas and 70 minutes on a 230g Primus gas cartridge.
Output: 3000W (LPG) 1500W (White Gas).
Packed size: 105mm x 82mm x 50mm.
Weight: 213g plus 110g extra if using the fuel pump, not to mention the weight of the gas cylinder or fuel bottle. Pouch, pump oil, extra jet and multitool add another 88g.
