    This is my favourite holiday stove, I used it on most of my camping trips since 2012.
    After my first stove ever, the Primus Varifuel began to clog I was looking for a new stove. Due to the helpfuel hints from that wonderful forum I was looking now for a Phoebus 625.

    After long search I found an expensive one in bad condition, and I bought it ;)
    I repainted it with heat resistant paint, replaced the washers and bend new pot legs from 6mm stainless steel rods. The distance between the old ones was too large for my Bialetti coffee makers.

    The reasons why I like that stove so much:

    - good simmer and a lot of power
    - it is really silent (especially my wife likes that ;) )
    - it is very robust and reliable
    - it has a large tank

    Ciao, Bastian

    I used my 625 snow camping several times one winter, makes a great snow melter. For all the reasons you mention.

    Bet it has been two years since I had the pleasure of its company. Might have to do somethign about that.

    Great pictures, TY

    Hi, @Sternenlicht ,

    Very nice presentation on the 625, and I agree with your love of this excellent model. I have quite a few of them, but in truth, and like @Majicwrench , I have not used mine in many years! That should change. It's too good a stove to let it be forgotten like that! Thank you for "reminding" me of just how good this venerable workhorse of a stove, actually is!!! Well done!! Thanks, again, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Thank you! It is alway a pleasure to use the stoves.
    The first one came with a kerosene jet, but a friendly guy from austria drilled it up for gasoline. But it also works great with kerosene. All of my other 625 run on kero.

    Ciao, Bastian
