This year iconic Swedish stove brand Primus is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the launch of the world’s first Multi-Fuel stove designed to run off liquid fuels and LPgas. To mark this launch, Primus are giving away one of each of their innovative stoves below.


OmniFuel is Primus' most award-winning stove ever. It has been tested extensively over many years and has proven itself on countless expeditions. It is extremely robust, reliable and powerful and designed to handle demanding situations, extreme altitudes and both low and high temperatures. The updated OmniFuel II is just as capable as before but has a more compact format. The new pot supports (grids) locks securely in the unfolded position and folds tighter making the stove more compact when stuffed away. The jets are clearly marked for each fuel type and attached to the pot supports (grids) so that they are never lost. With 3000 watts OmniFuel II has power to spare, it can be used with virtually any kind of fuel, including gas, gasoline/petrol, diesel, kerosene/paraffin – even aviation fuel. The control knob allows you to adjust the flame from simmer to boil, even while wearing gloves. OmniFuel II comes with an ErgoPump™, a multi-tool with a cleaning needle, a windscreen and a heat reflector.

OmniLite Ti is based on the same technology as Primus' award-winning OmniFuel and is constructed to handle demanding situations and environments. This stove is just as reliable and robust, but smaller, lighter and much more fuel-efficient. Its output has been adapted for the new generation of fuel-efficient pots with a heat exchanger, like our Eta Pots™. The windscreen and pot supports are made of titanium, making the stove very stable and light. OmniLite Ti works with gas, gasoline/petrol, diesel, kerosene/paraffin, and even aviation fuel. Using the separate control knob, you can adjust the flame to the heat you want, even if you are wearing gloves. The pack size is minimal and the stove is perfect for one or two eco-conscious people heading out on an adventure. ErgoPump™, a multi-tool with a cleaning needle, a foldable windscreen, a heat reflector, a 0.35 l fuel bottle and a convenient and durable storage bag are included.

Attach this small accessory and listen to the undisturbed sounds of the wilderness – even while cooking! When using LP-gas or white gas, OmniLite Ti can be fitted with this silencer that transforms it into a silent stove. The silencer is not suitable when burning diesel, kerosene/paraffin or aviation fuel.

The ExpressSpider is one of the lightest hose-mounted gas stoves available and a perfect alternative to any top-mounted gas stove. ExpressSpider uses the same technology as our top-mounted gas stove ExpressStove and is extremely sturdy, durable and lightweight. An obvious choice for those who are after a hardwearing and flexible stove. The stove is delivered with a heat reflector and nylon stuff sack. Gas is not included.

This competition has now closed.

Going on the Primus website's timeline, the first multi fuel stove was launched the following year (after the prototype), so the correct answer is one year less than one of your answers. I selected the closest one though!

I'm wondering how they define multi-fuel? I remember a stove a mate had in the 80's, Coleman I think, it could use more than one fuel, Coleman fuel whatever that was, paraffin, and petrol.

Ah, but the Primus is a true multi-fuel stove in that it can run on liquid or gas fuel

Aye OK that's fair enough I suppose. I used to use a beautiful brass Primus my dad gave me, from the 50's I think, ran on paraffin and had so much control, from a light simmer to a fierce quick boil. But it got harder to find paraffin, and a washer on the pump action died. We improvised for a while but eventually in the 90's it had to be retired. Shame.

I've had an omnifuel stove for sixteen years and it's been a damn fine stove too. One of the first things I did with mine was drill the legs off (the manual made it clear that the designers were very proud of the stove legs, so they probably cursed me for doing so) after which the stove fitted neatly into the base of the large-size Trangia stove. Now it runs off everything except coal, laughs at wind, can run from a gentle simmer to a flame hot enough to make me worry about whether my pans will melt and only removes my eyebrows occasionally. Top piece of kit, even if it does sound like a jet fighter sometimes. T.
