I wish that was true Bertrand.

but by carrying a pot and tripod I can raise it far enough above the inferno to cook.

These days I leave it at home, in fact not sure where it is and use my 16 year old £10 gaz stove. It is much better. Even last year when I went camping with the car, the gaz stove was my cooker of choice. I can do a brew up quicker with it than I can get the omnifuel put together and fired up.

The postal charges from France to UK are now horrendous. o0ften more than the object is worth. I sent a jacket to a friend and it was over 45 euros.
Plus I would have to find the omnifuel, most likely it is either in the junk room or a barn, but I really don't know where it is, haven't seen it for over a year. Last time I used it it was to melt grease for a chain, but that didn't work out ( grease would not melt). I know where the spare 1 litre fuel bottle is because I carry that as spare fuel for the bike (worth 20 miles). was so disappointed with it i just lost all interest in it, although I am considering making a little stove housing for my little gaz stove so it can work well in high winds. atthe same time i hope to have variable height place to rest a pot. that might be the way to adjust the inferno down to a simmer. I like to slow cook one pot wonder and just let the pot simmer VERY gently for an hour or so. Maybe I should take up Wok cooking

Even so it really is a pain in the A$$ to put together and fired up for a quick cup of tea. So much so when I have it with me I seldom can be bothered to use it.

I have seen people using Coleman 533/sportsters and they seem much simpler to operate.

The real problem with all of them is unlike the old paraffin primus types the modern stoves have very small vapouriser units so when shut down to a simmer gradually cool and stop vapourising. When they go out they are a nuisance to relight to start cooking again. after twice having to change over to the gaz stove to continue cooking I got to the state where it just wasn't worth while taking it.
