Does the small detachment cook stove run off gas or diesel?

To all...

I have read several threads on the small unit stove...and just bought one...44 dated with 60s replacement parts...was a good deal..


I plan to use it for jeep gatherings, and know there are other, more economical and reliable stoves...but this is cool!

So my question is...
the stove bottom gets very hot, hence the putting it on the ground...but....can a metal stand be used to raise the stove or would the air underneath cool the bottom or allow the heat to radiate out underneath versus into the stove...

And what is the normal time to reach operating temps? average time? assuming a lot depends on outside temps, fuel and combustion flow...the set is all NOS parts still wrapped up...so hopefully will set it up in a week or two..

the Youtube video is very sterile...and doesnt really show in detail the start up...with all these stoves out there...not many in use?
