I think it is a slang name for the Mahle magnesiums.

This is why

Fabian, the term originated from the similar look between the face of the Mahle wheel and the steel grate that holds a pot from touching the flame on a gas burning stove.
A well known Porsche junkyard in Orange County, where I bought my first set, told me that back in the 80's.

I always wondered about the origins of the name until one day last year. I pulled up next a nice early 911 that had them and I told my girlfriend that I would love a set of "gasburners" like that for my car. Right away she says "they do look sort of like the burners on a gas range". I felt real smart.

I've heard some P guys call them "stovetops" too.
