If you are looking for a reliable and robust stove to take backpacking or camping and don't want to be restricted when it comes to fuel options then pack a Primus Omnifuel.
Well known for its portfolio of efficient and durable camping and backpacking stoves Primus has excelled itself with Omnifuel. This multi-fuel stove adapts to most fuels including LP gas, gasoline/petrol, diesel and kerosene – even aviation fuel so you're no longer restricted to canisters.
Thanks to advanced materials and functionality the Omnifuel is designed to handle demanding conditions, extreme altitudes and both high and low temperatures. It's a solid piece of kit that can be disassembled using the multi-tool provided, easy to clean and quickly reassembled while out in the field ready for the next time.
Thanks to a separate control knob the flame can be adjusted to provide the exact heat required. The Omnifuel comes with a whole host of accessories including an Ergopump, a multi-tool with an integrated cleaning needle, nylon stuff sack and windscreen and heat reflector.
