    There are alternatives to Petrol, Gas, Parafin or Spirit stoves out there that after the initial outlay there is no further cost.
    I'm talking about wood burning stoves of the woodgas variety and also bigger firebox stoves

    There's no screws, bolts, jets or fiddly bits to lose in the dark on these sort of stoves and you get a nice flame to sit around too
    Also there are some multifunctional wood stoves that can incorporate yer Trangia bits and gas bits too see Backpacking Light

    These three pictures are a Woodland Edge camping stove

    A market opportunity for Mark Hooton at Cymarceng maybe?!!

    These two are of a Liard Firebox/stove. It's bigger than the one above.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    the only problem with the wood stoves is the time it takes to cook something or boil water.

    from start to finish inc unpacking i can have a litre of water at a rolling boil with my cheapie gas or fuel stove within 5 mins

    Yes I would grant you that, we've got to have something done quick quick quick these days.
    There are other issues with a wood stove, the heat output is variable and not as clean but you
    can keep boiling water as long as there's trees. You can't grill meat or make toast as well on a
    little gas stove either. Wood stoves come into their own when you are going to be static for a
    few days. I use gas, petrol, trangia or wood stoves (not all at the same time) depending on situation.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

I also assume it uses unleaded petrol but can't find it anywhere on the website. Thoughts appreciated


    That takes me back. It's exactly like a petrol stove I had in 1967 on a (landrover) trip to morrocco! Worked flawlessly and very stable. Bit smoky though.

    I have to admit to being a bit of an Optimus fetish freak, with 3 of the things (111 parafin, 8r petrol which is brilliant but small and an old brass one that is an upright type and I have forgotten the model number.)

    The 8r was my preferred stove for bike trips, or the Coleman featherlight (you can't have too many stoves!) BUT I have to admit I have been converted to a modern version. I had the chance of an MSR Dragonfly, virtually new and had only been used over one weekend...so I bought it. WOW, what a difference. The old timers are now in retirement, I shall only use the MSR from now on - if you haven't used one, you don't know what real performance is. Economic to run (FAR more so than the 8R), not that compact but no worse than anything else and just bullet proof and repairable in the field. I won't be changing any time soon - but I will give the old Optimus burners a clean and a fire up for nostalgic reasons every now and then. There is nothing like the roar and jet flame from them! The MSR does the same, just far more efficiently.

    As for a Woodman stove, no thanks. Can you imagine putting the sooty, ashy, used one back in your panniers? They won't stay shiny for long - look lovely when new, but the blackened ones in use are more realistic....yuk.

    spares can be bought - its the pump that might fail and replacements are cheap.



    yes no worries at all. i have cooked on it many times and its fully controllable.

    have a look around on ebay as the prices vary quite a lot - get the one with the metal pump but some sellers try to charge extra for the metal pump version although 95% of the stoves are metal pump anyway.

    i bought mine from here http://stores.ebay.co.uk/spread-eagl..._sid=885120183 then look for brs-8 stove, same stove but with plastic case and an extra £20-30
    I got one after looking at this for the money ASTONISHING!!!!! ran it yesterday, easy to light and seems to control well , Lot more power than me old gas one , says it runs on gas, diesel, and petrol , got a brew on in jig time
    still no deid
