Does anyone else leave their pump in the bottle full time? I've been doing this for about 2 months now and haven't seen and ill effects, nor do I see anywhere in the manual where it says not too. Just seems every video I have ever watched of someone using this stove they pull their pump off the bottle when not in use, that seems like a good way to spill fuel, or introduce contaminates into my fuel bottle.

I had a msr set up that I never took the pump off of it. You should be fine leaving the pump on there.

I started leaving my pump in the bottle while doing the JMT. No problems.
