Re: Kerosene... Fighting the Good Fight!

Beware of kerosene burners from A & H. Our recent experience after purchasing what they claim is a direct replacement to the patria- after installing & pressurizing the burner proceeded to poar out raw kerosene. After a phone call they sent another, but it too did the same thing- also does not come with a pricker, so sent both back as they are no use to us. We have used kerosene for over 25 years & never had this happen before...
There is a co. in England that has just come out with what they claim is a copy of the optimus burner, they claim they now have the patent & are making them, however it's pricey.They may be contacted @ Good luck to all!
