Optimus Loke burning avtur.
how long will a tank last?
Sorry I have no idea, I only got it out of curiosity
One for my wish list .... But hopefully at car boot/ auction room price .
Nick on my wish list also, IMHO the ultimate presssure stove, storm cooker amalgamation.
I no longer have either of my grandmothers but the for sale sign would soon go up for one of these if I did.
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, 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
