    Shit will run on biodiesel, gas, butane, anything you feed it, just twist the burner to set the air/fuel mixture. :bowdown:

    I got a nice 3-burner coleman suitcase stove at home that runs on coleman fuel or gasoline. I think it was only like $90.

    If you're going to get a compact stove, just get a coleman Peak One. I've been backpacking for years, and nothing even comes close to a peak one. Those kinds where you run the hose straight into the fuel bottle, they are such pieces of shit. I had one on a backpacking trip this summer and every time we tried to use it, it would take an hour or more to tweak it till it would even stay lit. And even then, it took an hour to get a small pot of water boiling. With my peak one, I'd pump it for 1 minute, light it, pump it for another minute, put the pot of water on, and its good to go in 15 minutes.

    It's total baller status though. Are there any other stoves that can burn any liquid fuel? This is just the first one I found.

    Meh. I'm betting that it doesn't work that well at all on anything other than white gas or gasoline.

    For those of you who aren't into backpacking/camping, this thing just really strikes me as like, a Desert Eagle. Sounds/looks cool, but in reality its horribly overpriced crap that you can buy for cheaper elsewhere in a more practical form.

    Neat, but it should be selling for about $60.

    It's been a long time since I last went backpacking, but I remember MSR stoves as light, efficient, fragile, low output, exceptionally temperamental, and stupidly expensive for what you got.

    all stoves like these are what you just said. but I'd rather pay $130 rather than $250

    plus I personally have owned 2 MSR's and altho somewhat low output (depends on conditions and kind of fuel you're using), they're reliable

    Good white gas stoves are cheap and work fine.

    Trangia Alcohol stove for me. Cheap, quiet, and alcohol has plenty of other uses in a pack.

    Peak one stoves are by far the best type of backpacking stove you can get. They're fucking reliable and take a beating and keep on heating. Though when they fail, its rather spectacular or rather dissapointing.
    I have a whisper lite by MSR. its a nice stove, but a bitch to get going "preheat" is not defined in the manual...Found out that that does not mean set the wooden picnic table ablaze..
