Hiking Stoves can be split in to three main categories depending on what type of fuel you are aiming to use - solid fuel such as leaves twigs and wood, portable LP gas, and multi fuel such as petrol kerosene and diesel. Each type of hiking stove has its own advantages and should be matched to the situation and environment you find yourself in. Solid fuel camping stoves are ideal for bushcraft camping and prolonged camping trips where getting hold of liquid and gas fuel may be difficult. Gas camping stoves on the other hand are more suited to adventures where you need lightweight and compact cooking equipment that can be quickly lit without foraging for fuel. Multifuel camping stoves are ideal for expeditions in remote areas where obtaining gas may be a problem and in extreme cold temperatures.
