Reliable in extreme conditions and at high altitudes, the MSR XGK EX multi-fuel stove is a favorite for expedition use.
MSR's XGK liquid fuel stove is the number one choice of expeditions around the world. The XGK EX is MSR's most reliable extreme-condition, high-altitude stove. This high-performance blowtorch is ideal for melting snow or boiling water.
The XGK EX dependably burns a variety of liquid fuels such as: white gas, kerosene, unleaded auto gas, and aviation gas. With a simple change of jets (included) the XGK EX will also burn jet fuel and diesel fuel.
The new flexible fuel line allows the XGK EX to pack smaller than ever, and now fits into a 1.5 liter MSR pot. The retractable legs and new wider pot supports provide superior stability.
The XGK EX comes equipped with MSR's self-cleaning Shaker Jet. In liquid-fuel stoves, the jet controls the rate of fuel flow into the stove's Mixer Tube, but for this to happen, the opening of the jet must be extremely small. Unvaporized and solidified fuel particles can wreak havoc on such a small gateway, but MSR's Shaker Jet solves this dilemma. A weighted needle nests inside the jet and when the stove is on, fuel will flow around this needle. When the stove is not in use, this needle will push any debris through the jet's opening with a simple shake--thus the "Shaker Jet" name.
The XGK EX includes the stove, fuel pump, windscreen, heat reflector, small parts kit, stuff sack and instructions. The Fuel bottle is sold separately.
