    The design makes me believe it's a self pressurizing gasoline stove.

    It looks like a kerosene stove to me. My guess is that the diaphragm he's referring is in the upper fuel chamber. As you screw the top down the diaphragm is pushed up. This decreases the space in the fuel chamber and increases the pressure. It looks a little top heavy and unstable but it's an ingenious design.
