    I spoke to this guy on Ebay
    simonchantwus_gmail
    He makes pump caps for different types of stoves and he said that he is in the process of making a pump cap with SRV for the Lixada, it will be available in about a month for anyone interested.

    The BD Omnipup (for the Omnilite Ti) works in the Lixada in my testing, it just needs a lot of preheat with alcohol.

    The Korean "UFO" cap for the Omnilite does not, it is too large to fit deep inside the bell (sits about 1/4" or less below the rim) and doesn't provide enough thermal feedback anyways. There is a version of it for the 8R/123 but I don't own one to test it, the diameter is reported as being 34mm for the 8R/123 version by the seller in contrast to the 1-5/8" (41mm?) that I quickly eyed out on the Omnilite UFO cap.

    Hi, do you have a picture? I'd liked to see how much higher it seats compared to a 8r. I did not try my 8r yet because I think it is too low but you may convinced me.

    It seems we have a different BD silent cap, mine is specifically for the Omnilite Ti from what I remember as is the first silent cap I ever purchased. Mine lacks the concave depression and has a flat top instead. You could experiment and do a test run just to check if it works. Prod the cap off afterwards with some pliers if it doesn't work.

    I have found that the Primus Omnilite Ti silencer cap (not the BD one but the Primus one) has the jets below the burner bell so maybe it might work.

    I see, when I will go back home Friday, I will take a picture to show how near, I think, are the bottom holes from the . Anyway for now it is too cold outside to try it.
    It is -42 celsius north of Alberta.

    Why did you need to? It’s a new stove not likely to require a replacement wick yet.

    @neviDimka I see. Thanks for directing me to that. I only followed this Lixada thread for a while.

    Hi, here is what I mean by to low inside, I don't think
    the air mixture with be right because of that. I will have a look at the Korean one.

    Sooo parts for PT-1/2 maybe?... a tad expensive for that I wonder if the burner parts are available separate. I doubt it since well China and throwaway culture...

    Yes. Think you have many cheap PT1 in Finland. PT2 is more rare and more expensive...

    Hello to all whom may know! Wondering if anyone with this stove has the information on how long the burn time is for it? Considering purchasing one, but not yet sure. I do like the portability of its size and that its self pressurizing.

    Works with kersose. It took 5 mins to get fully primed. And even then it burned pretty dirty, and took 10 mins to boil 2 cups. Adding a windscreen made the process of priming go much better. I'm not too concerned about overheating with a windscreen during priming - esp since the vapor pressure of kerosene is so much less than gas.

    IMHO you should always use a windscreen of some type outdoors. My experience with small atmospheric alcohol burners has taught me a considerable amount in regards to the benefits of windscreens because of their low output.
    They improve, priming, efficiency, speed etc. when used with classic stoves using common sense (and lamps).

    A stove without a fuel pump meant to utilise the self-pressurising nature of gasoline working on kerosene? Or maybe you got an Optimus-style fuel cap and mini-pump?
