    I don't know anything about this stove except that the fill cap says "Radius" so it's probably not original. And the flame ring around the burner has been crimped to fit so it's probably not original either.

    Now that's interesting. A Vacuum Oil Sunflower on an Optimus tank.

    The ones I've seen are Portuguese or Radius. So Radius parts don't surprise....

    And a real oldie, to boot.
