Great stove
5 5

I bought an Optimus Nova (Brunton version) in 2007 & the only problem has been the thread stripping on the fuel bottle, which was probably my fault
In Scotland I used mainly kerosene as fuel in winter, pre-heating with methylated spirit (alcohol) but used unleaded petrol for pre-heating as well as the main fuel in summer since the flame from petrol is easier to see.
The stove has been very reliable, easy to use & will light practically anywhere using a flint&steel sparker, which benefits from being attached to 12-15 inches of reflective guyline. Harder to lose but easier to use.
I keep a windshield wrapped around the fuel bottle where it doesn't get damaged and find the 600ml bottle is easier to pressurise than the larger one.
