Titanum Fuel Bottles on 09/28/2007 20:21:27 MDT Print View

Every now and then they show up on ebay, and usually go for a pretty hefty premium....

Good luck,
Mike

Seeing the Ti fuel bottles next to the SVEA123 just struck me as a contradiction. I have that stove and although it's a real workhorse have never carried it with my UL gear. I do spend spare time polishing it, though. OK... I guess it's not all that heavy.

Linsey / EC,

Where were you able to snag those from (I see they're factory sealed)? I'd be interested in grabbing one just for the cool factor...

Ti stuff on 10/11/2007 16:43:20 MDT Print View

optimator - that is a 12 year old Evernew spoon + fork set. I prefer it to the MSR utensils or that spork thing.

quoddy - yup, that Svea needs all the lightweight company it can get. These MSR Ti bottles are slightly lighter than similarly sized aluminum bottles, even the outstanding & now discontinued lined, alcohol safe Sigg fuel bottles which I retired after 15 years. Wouldn't think of using any other stove than the Svea though, dinosaur or not!

jdmitch - Linsey pointed me to the last bottles laying at back of a store in CA, I called them & bought 'em.

I too love my old SVEA. Just last week I broke it out of storage to try a new priming technique I'd read about. Turned it over, lit a good bit of alky in the bottom well to build up pressure, back over upright and lit it. Who would have thought that much flame could come out of ONE stove? Wish I had pictures! I may have a slight (read really big) packing leak ;-)
