Taylor kerosene stove

I have a lot of experience with kerosene stoves. Your post is so old that I suspect that you have given up by now. If you still want help/advice, please e-mail me at XX@hotmail.com Replace the XX that I just mentioned with yacht_alegria and be certain to put the word Latitude in the subject line or the spam filters will not let me see it. I should reply within 24 hours and usually within an hour or two if I am aboard and awake. Feel free to send one a day if you wonder if I missed it.

Primus or Taylor or Patria are all good burners. There may be others by now. My experience is from 1976 through 1992. Then we went propane.

What is wrong with the burners that you have? Usually they can be fixed quite a few times.

You must have a fuel that is very close to real kerosene. Diesel and many hydrocarbons foul the burners very quickly. Jet fuel and some paint thinners have worked for us, but using the wrong fuel can also be very dangerous. Never use gasoline or lacquer thinner, etc.

You must pre-heat the burner. Alcohol works well for the preheat, but there are many tricks to using a kero stove. We cooked all of our meals for about 14 years on kero. It is MUCH easier if you know the tricks. They are NOT user friendly stoves. ;-) Just fine once you learn how.

Defender should have burners. e-mail = orders@defender.com

PS Did you know Tavi & Sheila & Eric on Lasqueti a big ferrocement ketch, yellow with a canoe stern. They were in and out of Thailand for several years. I have bad news. The people are OK, but Lasqueti hit a coral head and was lost south of India.

Taylor kerosene stove

Hi, I have a Taylor 2-burner kero stove in my boat and I need new burners. It now uses Primus burners, but I''ll switch if I have to.

I am in Phuket, Thailand, and can''t find what I need here. Would appreciate any info on firms that sell by mail order, online or not.

Thanks,
Jim
