Sorry, Dave, these threads do seem to wander, don't they.

I'm not sure but I'd think that you could modify and alcohol stove for kerosene, but the tricky part may be finding the info you need (re jet sizes etc) to do the job safely and properly.

Another option might be to change parts between two stoves - kerosene stoves are cheap at recycle outfits too.
