Multifuel burner Artno 750001
The Multifuel burner X2 is a fast and safe alternative that is particularly suitable in extreme weather conditions, such as very low temperatures. Most suitable for experienced users as it is slightly more complicated than our other burners, it requires preheating and regular maintenance. The Multifuel burner is available as an accessory.
Which fuel should be used?
Multifuel burner X2 is a so-called multifuel stove and can be used with gas or liquid oil based fuels. Our recommendation is primarily that you use gas or high quality liquid fuels.
Gas- jet 0.32mm
The multifuel burner runs on gas cartridges with Propane/Butane/Isobutane mixture. The valve is international standard: EN417 threaded valves (7/16 NS Lindal Valve). These cartridges are available in most countries around the world. There are many different brands of cartridges available on the market. Gas canisters are normally available in 3 different sizes 100 g, 230 g and 450 g. For cold temperatures we recommend Primus Winter Gas, it works effectively down to -22°C. The Quality of the cartridge and gas may vary. Well known brands of high-quality gas cartridges are: Primus, MSR, Optimus & Jet boil. In Sweden you buy gas at most outdoor shops, petrol stations, grocery stores and hardware stores such as Jula, Biltema, ÖoB, and Claes Ohlson.
Liquid fuel- jet 0.32mm
For this burner we recommend a high quality liquid fuel such as white gas or alkylate petrol. Other suitable fuels are Primus Powerfuel and Coleman fuel. These fuels have the highest energy content, burn very cleanly and require the least amount of cleaning and maintenance. This type of fuel has different names in different countries, you can find the most common in our fuel list. (Links at the end of the page)
Example of fuels and valve:
Kerosene and diesel should only be used in absolute emergencies as they require a lot of cleaning after use. The quality of these types of fuels varies all over the world, therefore it is impossible to predict how the burner will perform. For kerosene & diesel use jet 0.28 mm. Regular 95 octane gasoline should not be used at all.
If you run on gas, approx. 116g/h are consumed at full power. 1l of water takes about 4 min to bring to the boil. With liquid fuel such white gas or alkylate petrol approx. 2dl/h is consumed at full power. 1l of water takes about 4.5 min to bring to the boil. (You normally never need to run the burner at full power, but for calculation purposes, this may vary depending on weather and fuel quality)
How much fuel do you need?
It can be difficult to estimate how much fuel you will need on your trip. With the above information in mind, you should also consider:
• How many people will you cook for?
• How many meals should be prepared?
• What kind of food are you going to cook…freeze-dried or fresh food?
• The weather matters, what are the temperature and wind predictions?
