Re: kerosene stoves.. WHAT HAPPENED!
The alcohol stove and oven on board were converted from alcohol to diesel by one of the POs, I have not drained the tank of old diesel yet to use it yet.
Until then I am using the world's choice of one burner stoves - butane in a can. Hot and clean. A single can lasts for many meals. I have a half dozen stoves, they are extremely cheap at Asian markets, for use at large gatherings.
