User Review: Optimus Svea
Price Paid: Don't remember-too long ago!
This stove has never failed me. It may be a little heavier than other, newer stoves, but when it counts (like in the winter or other bad weather) it never fails to light.
Yes, it is noisy and smelly compared to the canned gas stoves. It has no maintenance except maybe to replace the fuel cap gasket once in a while.
I have had mine since 1983 and it is still going strong.
