Seb Wirthwrote a question about MSR MSR Fuel Pump on March 17, 2010
A while back when I was a fair bit younger, still in high school, I went hiking with with my whisperlite stove. The fuel bottle was full and I over pressurized it. It started leaking. That leakage caught alight. It blew up. The whole thing was torched and the plastic pump completely melted. The stove was also adequately bathed in flame. I've been using a Trangia for the last couple of years, but would like to go back to using the whisperlite.
My question is. Do you think the stove would still be safe to use, if a replacement pump and bottle were acquired?
