    I had one Optimus styled (Hanse burner) regulated burner to spare. I found out that this has the same thread as some of the Phoebus burners (not all! ) and combined Hanse burner and Phoebus tank. Just for playing. Lots of power, nice simmer. Better regulation than the original burner, which I also like a lot. Burnin with kerosene.
    Selfmade wind screen from a aluminum bottle, key from a thread cutter.

    Ciao, Bastian

    But not necessary, one of my 625 is running on kero with its original burner without any problem. But the regulation is better with the Optimus burner.
