One jet—any fuel.
The Optimus Polaris Optifuel Stove is an ISPO award winner in the Outdoor Stove category and there’s no question as to why. This stove raises the bar for all other camping stoves because of its insane versatility and ease of use. Don’t fret if you only packed one type of fuel—the Polaris Optifuel utilizes Single Jet Technology, meaning both LPG gas canisters and liquid gas (kerosene, diesel, jet fuel and white fuel) are compatible without having to change anything on the stove. The Polaris also comes prepared with the MAGIC cleaning needle, which allows you to quickly clean the stove—even while cooking. After whipping up a meal for the whole camp and the weather takes a turn for the worse, it doesn’t mean you have to go without some post-meal coffee. Just set up the heat reflector windscreen, flip the LPG canister upside down, and engage 4-season mode to increase the heat output, so you can boil water, even in rapidly dropping temps. If you’re racing daylight to make a meal, the patented quick-priming burner cuts down on pre-heating time and allows water to boil in just four minutes. When you’re done cooking, the self-purging FLIPSTOP pump safely clears the burner of fuel and depressurizes the fuel bottle, permitting you to safely dismantle it before loading it back in the stuff bag.

Multi fuel is a great deal if you're traveling in most countries. Most of the liquid fuels have a higher btu per volume than goes gas cylinders and no wateful cylinder to throw away. The Optimus is a great stove and you don't need to be fiddling with jets to adapt to a new fuel.
Good stove that will last a lifetime.
It's a little harsh to nail it down to one star because of a 0.1l difference in fuel bottle size.
Fuel bottle is smaller than ad
I saw that optimus polaris stove is included 0.4 liter fuel bottle. But It's included 0.3 liter bottle. What's wrong?
The bottle has a total capacity of 400ml. For safety reasons and to accommodate the additional volume of the pump, it should only be filled 3/4 of the way. Hence the 300ml RATED capacity on a 400ml bottle. It still feels like slick marketing and should be considered unethical, but they didnt "technically" lie.
