    As I plan to travel for a few years, I need to have a cooking system that I can run any time anywhere, without having to think abount reloading, especially with gas bottles as some countries are using LPG others Butane, propane or any mix. I know there are some fuel powered system that can run on any kind diesel, petrol, unleaded.

    Tell me if you have ever experienced those fuel portable stove.

    Hello nick

    thanks for your reply

    I was thinking about that kind of fuel stove made by Optimus that looks very handy.

    For just making a brew the kelly kettle is hard to fault
    I use a jet boil. Although that relies on gas canisters they are freely available most everywhere

    HI

    On my last long trip I used following combination

    G2 Folding Firebox Stove
    https://www.fireboxstove.com/5​-g2-firebox/5-inch-folding-firebox

    Spirit burner
    https://trangia.se/en/burners-and-burner-accessories/

    bioethanol fuel
    https://ekofuel.org/12l-bioethanol-fuel-for-camping.html

    I used it 90% of the time, with the occasional gas stove, as its easier to simmer.

    I also like the silence of the Spirit burner. You can also use the Firebox to cook using wood or coal.

    I also have a Optimas, but it started leaking fuel, so never used it.

    The biol fuel works well too.

    Other than petrol/diesel, everything is regional. Kerosene / fuel oil comes close at no.2 and then coal/wood at no.3 ( its easy to find but open fires are regulated ). Forget about all the branded fuels unless you staying local, eg Europe.

    Imho.

    I'd say, Coleman double burner and a Jetboil type too. The Jetboil is for tea / coffee stops. Dead quick gas goes forever and is pretty widely available. There was no trouble getting them in Russia. I used 1 and a bit for a whole month.
    But for evening cooking, breakfast etc the double Coleman is brilliant. Good on fuel, plenty hot we even boiled oil and made chips on it! If you take a skillet plate you can do big fry ups on it or things like kebabs.

    I have over 12 stoves (because I'm like that) and the Jetboil plus Coleman come out on top every time.
