Check fuel lines, valves and connections for leaks before lighting stove.
Let stove cool completely before changing cartridges or adding fuel.
Change or add fuel outside the tent and away from open flames.
Do not use stove inside the tent unless absolutely necessary (if it won’t run otherwise or you are at risk of hypothermia).
If you must use it in the tent:
Light the stove outside and bring it in once it is running smoothly.
Cook near the tent door for better ventilation and in case you need to throw the stove outside if it catches on fire.
Provide plenty of ventilation so Carbon Monoxide does not build up inside the tent.
