Forces M.C.

“Dexagas” Portable Picnic Stove

Fond of eating out of doors? Then here’s an attractive little portable picnic stove that packs neatly away in your car. The “Dexagas” stove runs on Butane gas — does away with the trouble of carrying paraffin or other liquid fuels. Simple to use, you just take off the lid, turn on the gas and apply a match. The effect is immediate and the stove burns very silently. (Ideal for the poverty-stricken British tourist making tea in the hotel bedroom!) The strong steel case, measuring 12 in. by 5 in., protects the cylinder and burner, and there are extra fitments such as blowlamp and soldering-iron attachments if required. The flame is not as hot as that of a Primus or similar unit but it takes less time to start and is cleaner to use.

The “Dexagas” stove costs 75s. complete. Gas refill 3s. 10d.; extra cylinder 35s. If you want more information or names of nearest stockists, drop a line to the makers, Dex Industries Ltd., Edwin Road, Twickenham.

Simplicate and Add Lightness!

In a recent article in The Motor on rear-engined cars an accompanying table of statistics included a column devoted to the engine weight, inclusive of water where applicable but not including the radiator. Taking two engines of identical capacity, the 1,488-c.c. Opel Record and Porsche 1,500, the former engine weighs 355 lb. and develops 40 b.h.p., the latter weighs 225 lb. and develops 55 b.h.p. Verb sap.
