    My shmel stove is burning very good. But after 8 minutes I mesure the temprature of the fuel tank, its 53 C.
    After 12 minutes, its 64 C. I stopped burning. Is it a problem?

    Everything is fine, longer burning times cause higher tank temperatures... the tank sits directly below the burner!
    Too much temperature and pressure will open the security valve. But I never had this.with my shmel or the similar Phoebus 625, even at very long burning times!

    there is no any problem with tank heating. just keep fuel level less than 0.75l and test escape valve for safety.
