I've got the Primus Omnifuel stove. Only problem with multifuel stoves is if something goes wrong with your fuel container. For instance on one tour I forgot mine and could not get a replacement. It would be a ton easier to just buy a canister stove that can use walmart canisters...unless you truly need a multifuel stove... which most of us in north america dont.

Also they require more maintenance, are more expensive and harder to use.

Otherwise the Primus is an excellent stove and does the job well. I would say unless you are on your way to get a ticket to a place where youd need one, start with a regular canister stove and get a multifuel when you are ready to go to those other places.
