    Just wondering the difference between an Optimus 111 and 111B before I order a decal for this stove.

    Hi @Bill Burdine The visual difference is that the gasoline burning Op.111B, as your stove shows, has two tubes supporting the burner top.
    The Op.111 was marketed as a Kerosene-burning stove, and has four tubes supporting the top of the burner. You can see this from this recent post:
