    A Coleman Denali Mutli-fuel camp stove, used once (now twice), purchased in 2010 from New York, USA. Missing her windshield and original box. Runs on Coleman Fuel (Outputs 11 000 BTU/hr) with default jet (one slot); Kerosene (10 000 BTU/hr) with double slotted spare jet or LPG Canister (14 500 BTU/hr) with default jet.

    Multi-tool and pricker ('Tip Cleaning Tool'). The stove comes with a 'clean out wire' inside the burner to clean the jet, so the tip cleaning tool is there in case the 'clean out wire' breaks?

    Burner in her packed position, the legs fold in tight and extend when required.

    Absorbent pad at burner base for priming. Note the single-slotted jet used for Coleman Fuel and Canister.

    Fuel control valve on pump.

    Connecting assembly - pump to fuel line. An aluminum plug fits into the female end of the fuel line when not in use, to keep it debris-free.

    Stove lit and running with coleman fuel. She runs VERY hot and fairly loud. She was easy to light after a prime with alcohol (they suggest coleman fuel or kerosene) if using either for fuel.

    'Low' output, colorful but still outputs too much heat. The 'Flame Adjuster' did nothing to regulate the amount of heat - I'm thinking the 'clean out wire' is broken or missing on this stove.

    I never saw any sign of the internal wire through the jet hole, regardless of how the flame adjuster was turned. The Flame Adjuster also rotates 360 in any direction, there is no point reached where she still didn't come to a stop so that's another reason me thinks the 'wire' is broken off. As it stands, it does nothing to help regulate or control the flame. The flame in this case was controlled by the fuel valve, turning it CW to help reduce the amount of fuel reaching the burner, which controlled the output/intensity. So it looks like the 'Tip Cleaning Tool' (aka Pricker) will be used after all. Otherwise she ran fine and seems to be well designed and built. She has a large single burner with long and sturdy pot supports that should do well in large groups using large pots/pans.

    Does the coleman fuel bottle have proprietary threads? It seems very metric (tighter spacing of the threads) unlike say MSR or even Primus.
