Issues with the Primus Omnifuel
We have had very little issues with the stove when knowing we have alone used this twice a day for 450-500 days. We do always carry the pump separated from the bottle as we think it makes it last longer not being in petrol all the time. We take care never to get dirt on vital parts as hose and pump.
- Blocked lines fine after cleaning
- Broken leather gasket on pump
- Heat exchange getting loose bended a few times..
Conclusion for the cycle tourer
The Primus Omnifuel is an investment and you should have some thoughts of where you are heading and what you need. Tim from Next Challenge made a nice list of stoves “Comparison of Liquid Multi Fuel Stoves” have a look there. We have been really pleased with the stove as it has lasted so far!
We have tried to make contact with Primus due to the heat exchanger but without luck. So can’t say much only that they never returned our emails.
