    One for the petrol heads! Gasoline or white gas for some. You know what I mean! This month the category is single burner petrol stoves. Could be a Optimus 8R, Svea 123, M-1942 or many others.

    Post your nomination as a reply to this post.

    The rules.
    • Stove must feature in the Stove Reference Gallery (SRG) with a link posted in the entry. So now's the time to get those stoves photographed & posted! If it's been listed for years already that is ok too.
    • Maximum of 2 pictures in the entry. The pictures must show the stove working & in it's entirety. More pictures can of course be shown in the linked SRG entry - as many as you want!
    • Stove must be presently owned by the member.
    • One entry per member.
    This nominations post will be open for the month of July. At the end of the month the post will be closed & the qualifying stoves placed in a blind poll for members to vote for. The poll will remain open for 1 week. Most votes is the winner.

    The winner will get a SofM Winner notation on their posts & profile & a £10 voucher code from The Fettlebox

    If this takes off & is repeated sufficient times throughout the year all winners will be entered into a Stove of the Year poll in January 2020. The winner will get a SotY notation on their posts.

    Good luck & have fun!

    I certainly won't be showing off any of my 8r's that's for sure. And I've told them so as well.

    July is summer vacation month here in Sweden. Of course a true vacation stove designed for "Campers, Cyclists, Hikers, Motorists, Scouts & Co." must give it a run for the July Stove of the Month.

    Early Optimus No. 80

    It certainly wasn't going to be an 8r was it.

    And I had some.fun and games wrecking the pricker getting it to work this eve.

    A very satisfying roar at the end though. I like the 8 I must admit, and my only remote tank stove. I think with a little more experience with it I would probably use it a lot more.

    Could use a shaker jet Mod. though. ](*,)
