This is an exceptional stove. I own amongst others a Kovea Booster+, an Optimus Polaris and Primus Omnilite TI and the Stormbreaker is my favourite. Much quieter than the others and love the fact you don't have to prime it. Easy to set up and I like the wider mouth bottles. Technically it's not as versatile as the Polaris or Omnilite so I wouldn't take it hitchhiking through Africa for a year. But that besides it's a beautifully made piece of Japanese engineering.

I purchased a Soto Stormbreaker during the last drop. My review is at https://drop.com/buy/soto-stormbreaker-stove/reviews/2416179 . Anyone who wants a "like new" (tested-only-once, never-brought-into-the-field) Stormbreaker stove, let me know. Email is my username at pobox.com.

I noticed in the images the Fuel Bottle has "WIDE MOUTH" clearly printed along the shoulder. This makes me wonder if the pump is only usable with the SOTO fuel bottles. In the US I have not seen many SOTO fuel bottles available. If you are carrying or need to carry extra fuel, this would require some consideration.

Correct. This pump is only compatible with Soto brand bottles. I suppose one could carry a different bottle for filling the fuel bottle, but you cant use your old MSR/Optimus/Primus/Sigg bottles for this pump. I believe it has something to do with a Japanese law requiring a fuel pump from a gas station to be able to fit into the bottle, but I could be incorrect.

It is only usable with SOTO bottles. They are available at campsaver.com in 750 and 1000 ml sizes.

Purchased expecting a multifuel stove, to find out it only burns white gas and isobutane. Honestly, this is not a real multifuel stove, but a duel fuel stove so its marketing dubious at best. I do feel a bit cheated buying with the expectation of this being a true multifuel stove only to find that it is only able to burn one type of liquid fuel.

I consider myself schooled. Without divulging my age I used to go to gas stations to get "white gas" which was used in coleman campstoves. Also used this "white gas" in my Svea 123 camp stove for many years. The instructions that come with the Stormbreaker say "with the gas canister upright, turn the valve knob to the left to release the gas. Then ignite the gas. After about 5 seconds when the glame stabilized, slowly turn the canister upside down. Continuous burning with the flame generated by the gas canister in an upright position may cause the generator to deteriorate faster. Such flame will cause combustion at a higher temperature and will adversely impact the generator material. Be sure to invert the gas canister about 5 seconds after initial ignition." I do however use mine with the gas canister in an upright position and have experienced no problems. There is some flaring when starting this stove (as there was with its predecessor the Muka) when using "white gas" as there is no priming required to start the stove. That flaring dissipates quickly as the generator is heated at which point you turn the stove dial from start to run.

According to the instructions for the Stormbreaker you can use regular unleaded fuel as well as white spirits.

I’d like to hear from Hikin’ Jim who has tested out this stove, most lately over various conditions last year. At one point, he noted the following :https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/soto-stormbreaker-–-odd-occurrence.39111/. I’d like to know if Soto has fixed this issue.

Not tht I've seen. I would love HikinJim to weigh in. I know from classiccampstoves that the pump (same as the Muka) is overengineered and contains many tiny o-rings, which are all potential points of failure. Overall, the pump and stove are really innovative, but not field serviceable due to its complex design.

I have a stormbreaker that I bought in 2018 which is obviously a USA production model as it contains instructions written in English. I attempted to duplicate this malfunction and no fuel leakage occurred. I don't usually travel with a pump mounted in the fuel bottles but thought I'd give it a test.

140.00 dollars... I use a 10 dollar generic isobutane stove (windproof too) with a 5 or 6 dollar propane adapter. So I have an effective multi-fuel stove for 15 dollars, I've used it plenty of times and it works well and easy.

Okay. Still doesn't make it worth 140 over a 10-15 dollar solution burning propane/iso or plain liquid afterall you can't bring more fuel hiking, and you'd bring whatever of the two fuels you wanted to use probably based on weight efficiency or for speed of boil (gas), which sort of makes the product fall into meme territory.

I know of no $15 product on the market that will burn both liquid fuel AND isopro canister gas. I can use canister gas in the warm months, invert the canister in the shoulder months, and switch to liquid fuel in the winter months. FWIW this stove melts a big pan of snow as fast or faster than any liquid fuel only stove I’ve used. What falls into meme territory is a wood fire to melt snow when it’s too cold for canister gas providing you can find wood for that purpose AND you’re in an area where fires are permitted.

What color and size fuel bottle comes with this? Pictures show silver and red. Soto website says red available in USA only. Also, title picture shows 23 oz bottle, specs list 16 oz fuel bottle. Thanks, Rich

Red. The total volume of the bottle is 23 oz, but the fill line is to 16.
