Zelph, or anyone, is there something else that has been found to work?

Thanx Hillbilldelux for keeping your stovie eyes open for a new source of material. Sound like an inexpensive way to get to a 1st class DIY stove.

I'll go to wally world tomorrow and get one or two. Thanx for the heads up and welcome to bplite :D

Nice Tobit.

I'll see if I can get some photos of a Fancy Feast burning clean kerosene or better known as Low Odor Mineral Spirits.

The design of the FF is such that it can burn a variety of fuels.

I will say this, a FF stove does not like a tight fitting windscreen. I've pretty much destroyed the new windscreen after two burns, at least it was cheap material. :D

Here are some numbers:

One fluid oz. of denatured Alcohol burns for 15m 50s with a Heiny Pot. A full rolling boil of cold tap water, 16 oz. worth, is ready at 9m 45s.

Does this sound about right? If so, it would appear that 3/4 oz. of fuel will be the sweet spot for cooking dinner and a cup of tea.
