Allright Zombie Squad, I need help! (Stove)

All right now, I have 3 multi fuel liquid stoves. One XGK MSR that is older than I am. One Brunton Vapor. (Both of those are remote fuel) and 1 cheap Chinese built in burner sits on top of fuel like the the Coleman style. I also have 2 isobutene stoves. So any of these is not really what I am looking for. Please do not say "I have an MSR Pocket Rocket and love it." Or "why don't you just use the XGK?" That's not what I am asking for.

What I need is a remote fuel white gas stove. I already have multifuel stoves and what I need right now is the smallest lightest white gas and white gas only stove. I need one stove that does one thing very well. My XGK doesn't fit in my cookpot because the fuel line does not bend. Again small and light. I am open to options that come from china as well. As long as it runs good and is light. It needs to fit in a Yugo Mess kit, without the canteen inside of course.

Help me Zombie Squad, your my only hope.

Have you considered the Whisperlite.

I had the original which only took whitegas. That got stolen from my truck so went with the international which is multi fuel. It's no larger.

I second the whisperlite. I've had the same one for almost 20 years, efficient, light, quiet.

Though I have very little experience with it so far, the Whisperlite is one of the top selling stoves on the market and was my choice for a colder weather stove to replace my iso fuel users. I haven't been able to test it in cold weather yet, but I'm hoping I do soon!

I've had mine out in as cold as we get around here it was around 10 degrees..... Worked like a champ.

I don't recall many white gas stoves that have problems in cold weather, maybe a little preheating is needed, but once burning they tend to happily churn out BTUs. Compressed Gas and Alcohol stoves are another matter.

From what I've seen of it, I'm honestly not sure there is a white gas stove that will fit in something like the Yugo mess kit.

Assuming you are looking at white gas for winter use, the most compact winter stove I've heard of is the Kovea Spider (here's a great review). This is a remote canister stove, not white gas, but it can be operated in liquid feed mode (inverted canister) which pushes its operational temperature fairly low (-18C / 0F). Not sure if that would fit your needs or not.

I was considering the Spider, figuring it would fit in my existing pot set (GSI Soloist), but in the end I decided to go with the white gas Whisperlite and a larger pot. For me the larger pot made sense since winter also equals melting snow for water.

Thanks for the comments guys! I'm actually pretty sure that some stoves would fit in the Yugo Mess kit. My Brunton Vapor AF fits but it's heavy. Although it works on a variety of fuel I feel it doesn't work on any better than a dedicated white gas stove. Can someone take measurements of the whisperlite and pump in a stuff sack? It might be my stove of choice? Also has anyone used any fire maple stoves?

The pump is really part of the fuel canister though could be separated but not sure why anyone would do that. I will sniff around for mine and take some measurements for you. Might take a few days as have it packed away. I only use it for winter and changing over my kit now.

Check out the Korea spider stove review claims it fits in unknown cook pot.

If you get the whisperlight, MAKE SURE that you get one with the cleaning needle. I dont recall when they started making them with those, but I had one without it, and it clogged up a few times. Other than that issue though, it is a completely bombproof stove.

Edit: I think the international model has the integrated jet cleaning needle.
