A sporty and small camping stove that can fire up a feast in minutes.
Coleman Sportster 2 Stove:
Efficient and robust, Coleman's Sportster 2 Stove is ideal for camping anywhere in any conditions.
It's a dual fuel stove that can run off Coleman Fuel or unleaded petrol, meaning it will work well in colder temperatures as well as warm. The stove is lightweight with a low profile, making it very stable to use, and has full flame control from simmer to high. The windblock pot support system helps maintain maximum heat and so saves fuel.
This 1000g stove is an ideal way of cooking on the go, particularly on trips where camping-specific fuel may be hard to come by. It's also a good choice as an emergency stove to keep handy 'just in case'.
The stove itself is only 15 by 12cm in size and weighs 1000g, but can run on full power for over 8 hours. With a boil time of just under 5 minutes, this is slower than some stoves by a minute or so but the smaller size and weight and flexibility of fuel source make this is a generous pay off.
A quality stove that the serious adventurer will appreciate.

l travell all over europe on a motorcycle,l have used one of these for 3 years,the big big plus point for me is l should never run out of fuel (as long as there is some in the bike,as l just draw it from the tank,as of yet l havent had to clean the burner (useing unleaded) perhaps l will to see if it makes any differance. there is nothing worst than being miles from anywhere,soaking wet and no fuel in your stove,but think l will buy a ex shelter so l can cook safely when it is raining,as of corse you cant use any cooker in a tent.
Powerful but not the easiest to find fuel for, 27 August 2012

This stove is great, with a clean blue flame and all the power you need. However, for a trouble-free experience you need to run it on Coleman fuel (desperately expensive in the UK), naptha panel wipe or Aspen 4, and none of these are easy to find when you're away from home, so make sure you take enough with you. Forget using petrol unless you want to be forever stripping it down and ckleaning it out. Like all white gas stoves, this is potentially very dangerous, so read the instructions!
Excellent stove, 16 January 2011
By Dave (Oxford)
I use this when touring by motorcycle, and campinng overnight on long trips.
The low height and wide base make it very stable, even on grass. It takes a minute to get burning cleanly, but putting the pan on too soon only makes the bottom of the pan sooty, and it's easy to clean the pan.It produces a lot of heat and a full tank of unleaded petrol (about half a litre) lasts about 4 hours. Only drawback is that it doesn't come with a case, so I bought a 4 litre Hi Gear cool bag which is big enough for the stove, a box of matches, and a piece of plastic tubing which I use to siphon fuel from My motorcycle in to the stove.As long as I have my bike I have fuel for the stove and don't have to worry about a gas canister running out when I'm miles from a camping shop.
I use the stove all year round and unlike some gas stoves this still works when the weather turns cold and You really need hot food and drinks. An excellent product tht does what it was made for.
