Post Micro camp stove
Picked this up in preparation for the Northwest rally. You have to look at backpacking gear when planning bike or scoot camping. Every inch of space counts, and everything you pack should serve 2 purposes.

Paid 30 bucks for it at the local "has everything" store. Amazon has it for cheaper though:

When you open the box and hold it in your hand, the quality of the stove is immediately apparent. Solid polished metal, kitchen caliber, but backpack small (with a very nice stuff bag/draw string). The grate/wind screen design built into it is brilliant, and if you look real carefully, you can see the little teeth on the cross bars in the photo. I think we all remember in years past -- doing a balancing act on those old collapsible models -- and trying to keep your dinner from sliding off onto the ground, for the bears to enjoy later. I'm in the process of updating all of my stuff, and this is an awesome acquisition for the price. I also ordered two canisters of Gasone fuel for it (was having a heck of a time locating actual Primus cans). I think the Gasone listing is right on this page. Great seller (through Amazon), boxed well and shipped very fast. The Primus stove threads onto them perfectly. I'm set. And as always, thank you to the folks who posted before me, and had said good things about this one. I can't wait to cook something with it up in the Sierra mountains.




Got a little msr pot and lid that locks and you can fit the fuel canister in for storage. Trying to make the most of my space.

I've been using one of these since the late 60s/early 70s ... picked it up somewhere !! !!

I call it an ALL.FUEL stove. Mostly I use gasoline in it.
You probably can find one at an Army surplus store for CHEAP !!

WalMart has a Coleman version of this military burner ... still uses gasoline ... something like $80.
I've got one of those too.

Basically, I like to stay away from anything that is going to make me have to go and find "special" fuel for it, like butane, propane, or coleman stove fuel.

I can always find GAS !!

That would have been my first choice, since I'll have the trusty MSR 20 oz gasoline bottle for reserve fuel.

I was actually looking for an alcohol stove, but this will work for now.

HarborFreight does sell an adaptor ... so that you can refill your own small Propane bottles from the large BBQ 20# bottles. I use that too.
but ... as I said ... I prefer GAS. I think that it's a very HOT flame compared to propane, butane, coleman fuel.

Mine uses 5 dollar 2206 fuel bottles. If you know of such an adapter for these, I'd like to hear it.

Its a propane/butane/iso-butane mix though.

Yeah ... well worth the $20 ... and if you find a 20% coupon ... then you're set.
I've been using one to fill the smaller propane cylinders for years now ... so, I know it works as it should.

That's where they getcha. The small specialized fuel cells. I can't tell you how many refills that you could get outta a 20# tank of propane ... but ... it's gonna be A LOT !!

I got one of these (kinda/sorta) for free in the 60s ... so that's a few years old, too.
Gasoline burns at such a hotter temperature compared to coleman fuel, propane, and butane ... so you don't need much. You can throttle the burner back a lot.

Yeah compact is the way to go.
A few of us in the group I scoot camp with made our stoves out of old pop cans. I run mine on denatured alcohol.
But the others run them on Everclear. They figure it works for cooking, first aid, and a sip or two if you are feeling up to it. :)

Funny thing is last time I was in REI I noticed that they sell a fancy version that basically looks like the one I made. Only its made out of titanium and costs $30 or $40....
Mine cost me $0.10 and a bit of time in front of the TV. ;)
