    It seems another 8R clon, but It's a rare rechargeable butane stove.

    Well that's something you don't see every day. A very interesting adaption and it makes you wonder why produce a butane version almost identical.

    That is crazy cool. John (Butane-conversion) @presscall should get a kick out of it.

    Hi @pau-i-amor Great acquisition!

    Looks like a “missing link” between a self pressurising liquid fuel stove, and a Liquified petroleum gas stove.

    Here is another “missing link” stove:

    RM Rambler, the Missing Link? *

    Best Regards,

    People in Spain use Butane for cook. I discovered liquid fuel cookers twenty years ago...

    Hi @pau-i-amor I can appreciate the dash for gas during the late 60's early 70's and the rapid decline then with the public of liquid field stoves.

    The RM adaption sort of seems a logical move, but to produce a butane 8r would seem to take the process at that time a bit too far.

    It's a wonderful adaption, but the market was moving so quick then.

    I agree! It immediately reminded me of this old post:
    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/converting-a-gas-guzzler-to-lpg.16242/#post-163596

    @pau-i-amor Great catch! It is a brilliant conversion really. What you now have is probably one of the best butane stoves for cold weather use. It utilizes cheap butane, and thermal feedback should take care of vapourization in cool weather.
    Would you care to deconstruct the filler cap, so someone could have a go at reverse engineering of it?

    Hi @pysen78 , Re-fill valve seem's like a Schrader valve without a core.

    Pushing the pin you can see when the valve is close...

    Fascinating unit. Is the burner compatible with an Optimus tank for benzine/white gas/naptha? Or do I see a little 'joggle' in the tank-to-burner fuel line that prevents such tampering?

    @SveaSizzler I think burner isn't a propane/butane adaption. I see a cut and paste action: There is a propane burner intead of the original burner.

    Hello, I have just acquired this same stove and I confirm that it is all original, including the burner, as shown on the instructions paper.

    Mine is NOS too. So, is this a butane stove? How could be refilled?

    Many thanks for any help.

    Nicola

    @Nicola Francesco Elia

    Excuse, Nicola! I just saw your question. This is a butane stove. You could buy a butane canister and refill. It seems you refill it like a lighter.
