multifuel stove(MSR whisperlite)

Hello,
Just made a small investment on a MSR multifuel stove whisperlite international. tried it out yesterday with petrol and made some coffee in a bialette moka express. works without a hitch.
I was always wanting a coleman fyrestrom ti. it is certainly more compactly packed and have got good reviews. The store i went to did not have much choice and I was tempted to buy .

The flame control is not smooth...its almost only on and off...

ok..it costed 100 euros with a fuel can. Got a discount of 20 euros. Bought in SFU shop, hanover, Germany.

Pare.

I think you'll find the Whisperlite should only be on/off, it's the Dragonfly that is adjustable.

Cheers
Pete

Almost on off, but if you have a gentle touch some adjustment is possible.

Hello Pete,
Actually i bought the stove with very little thought. I had spent years dreaming of buying one good multifuel stove and zeroed in one coleman fyrestrom. I could find only one korean gas fueles stove in India. So, when i went out, i just wanted to buy one and bought the whisperlite.
not having control on flame strength can be a pain sometimes, but i think i will learn to do with it. should not be a problem after many lunches and dinner made on open fire ...
Cheers

Hello Stewart,
Yeah, the adjustment is quiet slight. I realised as i was trying to get it as low as possible for making coffee...and could manage to get it as low as i wanted...i just raised the container a little higher and it was fine..
I think once i get to know it well enough, i will be able to use it in the best way possible for cooking anythg..

Hi Svetlana,

In Morocco eveyone uses camping gaz bottles, just buy a new regulator and gas locally when your bottle runs low - they are cheap. or buy a regulator/bottle on the way through France.

The MSR stoves are good, we were camping at 4500 metres and our Dragonfly worked perfectly - a few more pumps required than normal with the thin air though!!!
