Hi All, I have been out cruising for the last 10 years, and have used kerosene (paraffin to the Brits) for stove fuel, with complete sucess. However, new burners and burner parts are becomming hard to find and expensive. The only manufacturer that I know of,is Optimus in Sweden, and they are very expensive!Previously,I used burners from Hippolite, a Portuguese company, but it appears that they are no longer in business. I am now in Uruguay, heading South, and would apreciate any feedback from anyone with a solution to my problem. Fair winds, Bill.
