Comments about MSR XGK EX Stove:

I wanted the ability to run diesel and use it for backpacking, otherwise I would have chosen a WhisperLite. This thing is annoyingly loud, and hard if not impossible to set at a low setting.

    Comments about MSR XGK EX Stove:

    I have just received this camp stove, so I have yet to test it in the field, but I have tried burning other fuels, other than white gas, to see how it works, and I can't express the satisfaction that this stove offers. I have used the MSR WhisperLite in the field, and love that little thing, but I needed a stove that offered a bit more flexibility, and this stove offers, and more. Like all my other experiences with MSR products, you can't go wrong with this little thing. It burns various fuels and I can't wait to get up in higher altitudes to really test this thing. I'll let you know once I field test it, but as what I have already tried with this stove, I don't see this failing me.

    The ability to use pretty much any type of gas is an unbeatable quality! Fast water boiler. It's small, tight, light, and handy. Does excellent in a pinch for power outage or electricity shut off emergencies too. Excellent buy, and far better than it's mother, the Whisperlight regular.

    • Q:

      Do you have to convert anything on the stove when you switch fuels? And is the fuel canister reusable? If so, can you simply top of the fuel canister before every trip?
      Asked on 12/5/2012 by Mitch from Murfreesboro TN

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Fuel canister is a refill able bottle. You would need to switch to a kerosene jet for avfuel and Kerosene. For the gasoline family of fuel you will use the X/G jet. For the Kerosene family of fuel X/K jet.

    • Q:

      Is this stoves heat adjustable, or can I turn the flame down to simmer?

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        It can be adjusted somewhat by varying the pressure in the fuel bottle....but it doesn't have a direct control for adjusting the flame, for example, like the MSR Dragonfly..

    • Q:

      can this stove burn 2 stroke mix? 25-1 or 50-1?
      Asked on 3/27/2012 by Mike from Fresno, CA

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        The MSR XGK EX Stove will burn 2 stroke mixture in a pinch. It would not be too sustainable becauce the jet will clog due to the oil in the fuel.
