Optimus Nova Multi-Fuel Stove
After winning "Outside" magazine's Gear of the Year Award in 2002 for performance, the Brunton Optimus Nova Multi-Fuel Backpacking Stove is a stove designed for the backpacker and expedition climber in mind. This multi-fuel, expedition stove gives world-class performance in extreme conditions, and includes a durable, all-aluminum fuel-pump with no flimsy plastic parts. The unique, quick-priming Nova burner reduces the time it takes from initial start-up to full ignition, saving fuel and time. Further, superb flame control, even with diesel exists; the stove also operates on kerosene/paraffin, white gasoline/petrol, Coleman® fuel and similar fuel types. Turbine-shaped legs fan out from the burner, forming a stable support to cook on, and built-in cleaning needle clears the burner jet from the inside out allowing this self-cleaning stove to require little field maitenance. Comes with its own fuel bottle and custom-fit stuff bag. Repair parts sold by Brunton for under $15. Information gathered from www.rei.com.
