You can find fuel to run this stove almost anywhere on the globe. The OmniFuel can burn white gas, kerosene, diesel, aviation fuel, and similar petroleum fuels, and will attach to butane or propane canisters. The fuel versatility of this stove makes it particularly appropriate for expeditions, but it also works well for frequent users and mountaineers. A built-in pre-heater improves performance at high altitudes, and in cold temperatures.
The Ergo pump has a flip-over, turn-off feature that runs air through the fuel line during shut-down to minimize carbon build-up. A secondary needle valve provides excellent simmering and adjustability without compromising the final heat output, and is accessible for cleaning.
- Made of brass, stainless steel, and aluminum.
- Serrated pot supports provide slip-free operation even on surfaces tilted to 20 degrees.
- Boil time may vary depending on fuel used, altitude and climate.
- Output is 8000BTU (white gas), 8000BTU (kerosene), 11700BTU (propane, butane).
- Comes with pump and threaded valve head for use with the either the pump and bottle combination or Primus canisters.
- Deluxe carrying bag and maintenance multi-tool included.

The average time it takes to boil 1L of water. Wind, air temperature and elevation will affect boil time in the field.
|Dimensions||15 x 8.5cm|
The output of any heat generating device is shown in BTUs (British Thermal Units) which measure the amount of heat energy needed to raise the temperature of 1lb. of water by 1°F.
Heat reflectors are placed under the burner and reflect heat back up towards the cooking pot. This helps save fuel and speed cooking time.
Liquid fuel stoves require a fuel pump to pressurize the fuel tank.
