Just getting back in to camping ect and after i lent my petrel stove to someone years ago and not getting it back i got myself a new primus omnifuel. running it on paraffin it burns really good. It was not cheap but as i sold some old airgun parts on ebay and got good price for them i thought why not, it will last my live time if i dont lend it out lol. i like a lot of rice meals, rice takes about 12mins to cook when water is hot not counting cooking curry or chilly, stir fry and all the other things i like. if i was to use meths i would be filling it up a dozen times or so. why i picked my stove.
