MSR liquid fuel stove pre-heating

MSR Whisperlite International Liquid-Fuel Stove using Fuelite (n-hexane) with the white gas fuel jet.

 

You let some fuel into the cup below the main stove element and light it, let that burn for a few minutes then turn the fuel back on and crank it up till you get a typical blue flame ring in the primary element.

 

From a prepper's perspective this stove is ideal as it can also burn kerosene, unleaded petrol and diesel which are all easier to access and transfer between containers than compressed propane or butane, so couple that with my wood-burning Grover Rocket Stove and I'll never lose the capability to boil water and cook food when the power goes out.
