Nice stove Pacu!  I haven't seen one in that color!

I have used my WhisperLite a few times now and I really like it but I haven't tried it with different fuels yet. So far I've been content to use it with Coleman fuel/white gas/naptha as that's what I have for other stoves.  I love it but I really wish the hose was longer- I'm super paranoid about having the fuel bottle that close to the flame!

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

Just make an Aluminium Wind Screen for it if you're worried about the bottle getting hot. I had a motorcycle pannier literally on fire with my whisperlite fuel bottle in and it thankfully didn't go. You can basically boil water in a plastic bottle on a fire, can't you, before the plastic melts?

Thankfully it is a steel bottle, not plastic.  It's one of these:

The metal makes it less likely to catch fire, but I still get paranoid, and apparent;y I am not the only one.  If you Google the WhisperLite it is perhaps the number one complaint about the product- everyone is paranoid about it, which makes me feel a little better, especially since it hasn't actually seemed to happen to anyone.
