Stoves that burn Kerosene on 12/30/2011 19:31:47 MST Print View

There was recent talk about stoves that burn kerosen and Iso91

This one I made a few years ago and will tweek it this coming new year to make it burn biodiesel. This video was made a few years ago :-)

Hi, Zelph,

Pretty cool. That's no small trick to get kero to burn in an unpressurized stove. Looks like a pretty clean burn too.

Anyone who has ever primed with kero knows just what a mess kero can be. Quite an achievement. Thanks for putting the Foster's pot in the photo. I couldn't tell how big it was until I saw the Foster's pot. Nice workmanship on the bail by the way.

I'll be interested to hear how the tweaking goes on this one.

Indeed! Keep us informed.
(Mind you, I used to use a kero room heater in the UK which burned cleanly ... It's all in the vaporisation.)

unpressurized kero stove: could suit trangias on 12/31/2011 04:46:48 MST Print View

Perhaps you could size it to fit a trangia 27/25:

the unpressurized simplicity would suit their philosophy(simplicity) better than the standard pressurised multifuel adaptor, whilst offering a fuel weight/volume advantage over meths and would gain a windshield.

Here is the BudLyte Super Stove modified to burn white gas without soot or flame flare-up.
