EDIT: you should make it clear that this is what the manufacturer claims as
fuels. I've tried diesel, and it is awful!

EDIT: no where have you said what fuel9s) you have used in the stove (until
right at the end). You should state what fuels you have experience with in
this first paragraph. The reader will wnat to know, after all.

Comment: while OK, it would be better if you were to explain that the stove
has two control valves in the Product Description section.
EDIT: don't call them 'fuel adjustments' as few will understand. They are
Comment: This feature is rare in liquid fuel stoves, and is why this one
works over a wide range of settings. The fact sort of gets lost the way you
have it. Will the reader understand?
(Stoves fascinate me...)

EDIT: not as good as the first version. May I suggest something like this,
with the English not quite so terse:
'I back off and allow a bit more fuel to burn in the primer pan to produce
" I back off and allow more priming fuel to burn to produce more heat'

EDIT: very unhappy English. Try something like:
