    The last one i saw in Sweden (4 weeks ago) was listed at $110+ and with 6 days to go!
    Too steep for me.

    Except it needs a lot of pumps with the midi pump (I think the instructions say 40). I no longer have mine but if I did I would be using a larger pump with this stove.

    It is a great stove and great pictures too, enjoy it.

    ;) for many years this was my favorite stove.
    It was sold as a multifuel, but in hence to the tendency to get a very hot tank, :^o this was not a smart idea! So this is a KEROSENE stove :!:
    The data on the stove is equal to 111, 1/2 liter tank, same output...
    The Finnish and Sweedish army's has used this stove, but the tendency too loose the pump made this not so popular.
    (Actually I have one spare set minus pump)

    A friend of mine, and scout leader has still this as a favorite, and has made a collection of 3, just to have stove for the rest of his life :D
