Phil Mattsonwrote a review of Optimus Svea Stove on May 27, 2011
I bought mine in 1970 for less than $7.00. Have used it for no less than several hundred nights of backpacking. Also have an Optimus Model 80 of similar design. Only problem ever was a need to replace the gasket in the fuel cap. Truly the most reliable piece of backpacking equipment I have ever owned!
