The SuperCat design burns and acheives a boil with 17ml of fuel and has the pot support built in. It can get a boil in about 4 min. If we keep those things in mind and use as a bench guidline for making stove we can answer some of our questions. What do we want, what do others want. I've used that as my guidelines.

I found the supercat to be not fuel efficient at all. I thought it was when I first made one, but then I tried other stoves. The thing about the Super Cat is in its simplicity and ease of construction.

Do you have a link to the site that did the testing? I was under the impression that the Cat and SuperCat stove were not know for being fuel efficient. 17 ml and 4 minute boil times are a pretty impressive combination that sound hard to match.
The test was conducted by me. I made a SuperCat using the template from Zen stove site. I used my 2.5 cup aluminum pot and starting water temp was 70 degrees. Under calm conditions. I have to emphasize "calm" conditions. Testing was done on the 'bench"

A slight breeze will change the outcome/efficiency dramatically. Adding a windscreen to the equation helps. Do what ever is necessary to make the stove work.

Many stoves need primer wicks to make them work and take more than a few drops to get them started. I'd like to put "few drops" into the "Urban Legend" catagory :lol:

Speaking of flame transitioning to violet made me have a flash back of your mesh/flame photo. I had to make a copy of it to post it here.

The mesh acting like a catalytic converter to ignite unburned gases. Achieving complete combustion and getting into the hottest temp range.

Nice idea to chamfer the pvc fitting.

Do you think a series of three chamfered couplings reduced in size, 2" , 1.5" and 1" would be able to flatten the bottom of a pop can without creasing/fracturing the aluminum?

Very nice JT. It will be interesting to see what you come up with to maximize fuel efficiency yet quicken boil times. :ugeek:

Another nice instructional video. That is something anyone could build for little money down. Thanks JT.
