    I previously experienced much shorter cooling times from my Ti gas stoves. Much alike with this one?

    Hi Otto, do you mean that the metal of the stove itself cools down quicker after you’ve switched it off? If so, yes, I think so.

    It seems to be the same with titanium pans. They heat and cool very swiftly.

    i have a Omnilite ti

    i use Kerosene Boiling 1L water need 6.5min

    but use gas only 4min

    i mean, use gas power better kerosene
    Do you also?

      Hi Andy, I’ve used mine with both gas canisters and petroleum-based fuels (e.g. petrol, white gas and kerosene)

      I’ve never done any experiments to compare speeds but would assume, as you have found, that a gas canister (when full and warm) would be faster than petrol-based fuels.

    Primus OmniLite Ti is an excellent stove, but it makes so much noise that Primus made a silencer, which should have been standard.

      Thanks Tor. It is indeed quite noisy, but I think multi-fuel stoves often are.

      I’m amazed that they are charging so much for the silencer (€60!) but I suppose it might not be included as standard because it adds weight (only 58g, but that’s an extra 17%) and I understand it doesn’t work with all fuel types (e.g. diesel/kerosene).

      I’ve always wondered whether they impact the efficiency too.
