Had it a while but it works great, in fact I -just- got a replacement leather cup so it pressurises perfectly! I greased it up and shoved it in, pumped it up and let rip for the photos (ok so it's not that impressive a photo). Have used it everywhere, on the sandy beaches, in the freezing mountains, easily boils water in the snow and probably high altitude too, and quite good on the efficiency. barely went through 300mL for two people, 3 nights in kosciuszko over xmarse (and we drink lots of coffee...)
I am not selling the bottle with it. there are three sizes that can be bought at the local shops, but in this case it's just the stove and pump, tool and case.

Was this stove fixed under the recall a little over a year ago? From what I understand there was an issue with one of the o-rings causing fuel to spill out.

Probably not. I've had it a few years. Never had any problems with fuel leakage. The problem I had was I never lubed it, so all that pumping in and out dried out the cap and eventually it tore off the end of the ramming rod... As a result there was no seal and nothing pressurised. My mistake, I guess, but all it needed was a new cup and more lube.

It's hard to tell from that photo if you have a silver or black burner housing. This is from the Optimus website about how to identify if it is subject to recall:

If you bought your stove between January 2009 and September 2010 and it has a black burner housing and shows a QA-number from QA000011-QA007313, please fill in the form below to file your request for an exchange. The QA-number of the stove is located on the side of the black burner housing. All Nova and Nova+ stoves with silver burner housing have no QA-number and are not affected.

Well that settles it. Couldn't be mine. Are you actually interested in buying it or just adding your own two cents?
"Man, whew. A Nova stove. Are you sure it's not a 1959 first-gen MSR? I've heard those things go out with a bang. Man, maybe you'd better double check"
