This stove is the ultimate expedition stove, while i was on a 20 day trip in peru mountaineering we had to use diesel, normally clogging the stove, it work great with minimal cleaning.

Was one of the rist on the block to get this stove. It works well and the best part is that you can use gaseouse fuel with it. Gaseouse fuel is cleaner burning and does not need priming. Nice thing about this stove is that you can warm it up using a canister and switch to liquid fuel without haveing to prime it. (be carefull going the other way). It is a bit heavey and a little touchy to simmer but once you get used to it it does great in all kinds of temperatures.

Expensive and a bit heavy, this stove has worked well for me using butane cartridges and white gas in a pump bottle. The stove did burn more dirty than my Whisperlite when using white gas, but the flame is also more adjustable. This stove has mostly metal components (such as the pump), which make it a heck of a lot more durable than some of the competition out there. Getting this stove to work well can be something of an art...

I ran this stove on w/gas, regular gas, kerosene and charcoal starter. Stove would clog after one bottle of fuel. Stove had to torn down and cleaned or put up with a very low heat out put. Stove was not dependable and might not be serviceable under severe conditions.
