Hi, I am a novice to backpaking stoves:
I have an older Optimus stove, model 99 that I would like to use. (It
looks like the current 8R Hunter model in a box, on the Optimus web
There is no pump on the tank so I assume I need to preheat the burner
cup with some fuel? What is the right way to do this?
Are Optimus stoves good quality?
How do they compare to a Coleman Peak 1 model 400?
Which of these two stoves would be more reliable/trouble free?
Thanks for your help.
