The Muka Stove has revolutionized common understanding of a gasoline stove’s characteristics such as becoming dirty with soot, cumbersome preheating, and maintenance before and after use. This gas stove combines a reliable, powerful output and ease of care. Muka is not a simple gasoline stove but the next generation of stove. Includes hose, pump, maintenance tool and a carrying case. Wide mouth
Fuel Bottle sold separatery.

Here is an excellent review, with pictures. http://seattlebackpackersmagazine.com/t ... ve-review/

It appears they got rid of the plastic parts that FAIL on another brand name component stove.

I would think the plastic tubing would break down, if stored with gasoline in the fuel bottle. I would take it apart for storage.

I like the little lantern they make.

I've seen the stove with bottle for ~$150 online. The one complaint I've seen is that the bottle takes ~250 pumps to get to pressure.

Here is another review: http://www.examiner.com/backpacking-in- ... -perfected

I read elsewhere, it was 100 pumps to pressurize it.

I asked that man questions about the 250 pumps to pressurize it.

He was on an 8,000+ feet high mountain at the time. It could very likely be the altitude.

I asked him if he had filled the fuel bottle up to the fill-line (indicating how much thin-air did he have to pressurize).

There is also a small fuel bottle and a large fuel bottle.

I hope he answers.

I am really interested in this stove. It has top BTU's and it is made for melting snow at altitude. I live at high altitude.

I am liking SOTO products: I will have to "check out" their lantern, as well.

I know my SOTO OD-1R is a great canister stove. It is the best canister stove I have ever had.

I found this information online:
With a 700ml fuel bottle filled to the “fill” line (480ml), the Muka’s instructions state that about 70 pump strokes will be required to pressurize the bottle. If the bottle is half empty, 140 pumps. On a 1000ml bottle, the instructions call for 90 and 210 strokes, respectively.

ref: http://seattlebackpackersmagazine.com/t ... ve-review/

This information makes this stove more user-friendly, as far as I am concerned.

Keep it up to the fill-line in the smaller fuel bottle, wait for the red indicator to pop-up.

It is more simple than the other component stoves and the pump component appears to have more reliable parts.

It is a great safety-feature not to have to prime the burner.

He answered:
Certainly each stroke of the pump is pulling on thinner air at altitude. I think the biggest factor was that I had very low fuel levels, but I was over 8000' in elevation (the video says 7000', but I checked afterwards, and I was over 8000'), and you're right that could affect the amount of pumping required.

I am, generally, at or below the alpine treeline when I camp, unless mountainclimbing. Then, my basecamp is higher.

This component stove looks good.

I agree looks good and has the looks of fine machined parts. I like it.

I should get a closer look at one soon. Will try to take some pics.
