Background, skip to last paragraph if so inclined: Most of the appeal of this stove for me is in it's ability to burn diesel fuel. My understanding of the fuels involved is that number 2 diesel, what is regularly called "diesel" here in the states, has a significant amount of un-vaporizable chemicals in it. Again, by my understanding, this will unavoidably lead to a carboned up burner eventually, regardless of how much heat is poured into vaporizing the fuel before it's pushed through the jet and out to the flame. Kerosene/white gas have some un-vaporizable components as well, but much less, and thus will take much longer to clog up a burner/generator. I've also read that "diesel fuel" in military use(USA and NATO allies, including the Brits), what's actually meant is JP-8, which is essentially Jet A, which is.............kerosene. This gives me concern that these are actually kerosene stoves. I see lots of references to people who own and regularly use their No. 12, almost all say they use kerosene in their stove. I can understand why, kerosene being regularly kept on hand by most of us and diesel not, but my main goal would be straight pump diesel use. I have plenty of kerosene stoves already, my main adventuring vehicle is diesel, and I do keep pump diesel on hand in cans. Finally, the question: Does anyone have long term experience burning regular pump diesel in their No. 12? If so, would you please share your experiences? Thanks.
