This is starting to look a lot harder than I thought. I just thought it would be fun to try something that not a lot of people are doing. All I see is alcohol can stoves (which I have made a fair share) and I'm bored with those.
The opening is huge!!!! yikes. Tell us more about a self pressurizing stove. What have you learned about them since you saw one being used on a hike.

Oops, what can you tell us about them.

How do you get them to get fuel up to the jet? What pressurizes them? sounds interesting. I always thought white gas stoves had to be pumped. What's the secret to these self pressurizing stoves.
If you made it a coil stove it ok but make it pressure not safe now the burner tube needs a rolled up screew in it or a good tight wick with a burner plate to spread the flame also the heat that gets the tube hot makes the whit gas pressure in the tank it will need a pressure releave vavle if it was me i not try it the tank could blow on pressure its not made for hi pressure make it a alcohol stove type lot safer
Man play with fire man get burnt
