Just saw this post, so I'll weigh in too,
This is an excerpt from my "Equipment" post, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=19686135&postcount=1612
My other stove (I carry 2 stoves) is the old Multi-fuel 1st generation Optimus-Burton Nova "Made in Sweden" with the Cejn connectors - later models were crap and dangerous apparently, so if you want a GOOD one, read this http://adventuresinstoving.blogspot....imus-nova.html
Mine has been pretty good most of the time. Always carry a rebuild kit (any stove). I've more than once had to do field repairs.
Also, this site is just about as good and comprehensive as it's ever going to get if you want to know about stoves...
Then check this out if you haven't for various fuel names around the world, something I'll post separately,
