    Ahah! That's good to know. Back in the day when I had one they were mostly if not all white gas and most of the ones I find claim gas as their fuel. I know the new ones are all multi fuel, but I didn't want to pay that much for a simple stove.

    There are stoves that will burn both, as Marc says, by design. There's the Coleman 550 that you can switch generators on for kero or petrol.

    Most are designed for one or the other. Why not keep it that way?

    To clarify, the new Hiker is indeed multi fuel. The previous versions were the 111, which was kero, or 111B, which was gasoline, and not multi fuel. Pretty sure I got that right, someone will correct me if not.

    I like your preference for kerosene in these stoves. Due to the pump and NRV design, I don't really consider them safe with gasoline despite that being what they were designed for. Bad business to incinerate customers and lots of people smarter and more experienced than I use them with no issue, but I'm weary.
