    That’s great. Glad to assist. Use the lamp oil in a Feuerhand wick lamp or similar!

    Hi @marcellev Great that you have your stove operating well!
    They are really good stoves. Mine is the simple version:

    Hello-Noobie here, looking for info on the Optimus 155. Specifically, a source for parts and an answer to this question:
    Can the alcohol version be converted to kerosene, and how?

    Hi, the burners are of different designs in the kerosene and alcohol versions of the Op.155 stove.
    The alcohol burner itself cannot be modified to burn kerosene fuel.
    It is possible to change over the burners to a kerosene burning type but this would be uneconomic.
