The Primus burners are indicated for use with Isobutane fuel. These canisters are light weight and provide great simmering capabilities for fine cooking control.
Some user want the flexibility to run propane fuel and purchase adapters to convert the burner filing from isobutane to propane. Propane tanks,
while lower in cost relative to Isobutane cartridges, are significantly heavier
than Isobutane cartridges when comparing equal BTUs of fuel. This
increased weight is due to the heavier gauge metal of the propane tank needed
to accommodate the higher vapor pressure of propane vs. isobutane.
pressure than Isobutane. Do not operate
the burners with the control valves more than ¼ turn open (counter clockwise)
as excessive heat will be generated and damage to the stove platform may occur.
We recommend the use of a stand. The stove must be supported in a way to allow
at least 8” of clearance below to accommodate the isobutane fuel cartridges.
The stand raises the stove to a comfortable cooking height and provides
room for the fuel canisters.
Some users have used the stove with logs or
rocks positioned at each end to raise the stove off the ground and provide
clearance for the fuel canister to hang below.
