it's called "Shellite" in Australia. "Naptha" is another name, as is "White Gas". also "Camp Fuel".
Thanks Daren......."Naptha" same thing as lighter fluid for Zippo type lighters????? that would be a handy dispenser container, just squirt it in :D

nope. Zippo fuel is way less volitile than Naptha. it doesn't burn well in alcohol stoves. i've tried it.
Naptha is a no-no in low pressure stoves. i blew up a Pepsi-G with Naptha (Coleman Fuel). just lucky i was outside when i did it! :D

Here in the UK we use Coleman Fuel and also know it as White Gas so it isn't confused with the Petrol/Gas we use in our vehicles.

Thanks sol and daren. I'll have to try some lighter fluid just for the heck of it :mrgreen: I'll try to get a video of the modification. All that involved is cutting the pot support down to the scribed line on the inside of the pot support. The fuel is added same as usual, pot is placed on the stove and lit. I have not tried burning alcohol in a modified stove, can't give any info on performance, suspect it will be a simmer type burn.

Here is the modification video. Do not use coleman fuel until I post specific intructions on it's use. coleman fuel is mo potent than alchy :mrgreen: Need to excercise extreme caution.

The stuff has mucho btu's, el grande combustiones :mrgreen:

10ml, 1/3oz will boil 2 cups of 30 degree begining temp of water in 35 degree air temp. No warm weather tests have been made, use caution when experimenting.

Under calm, cold conditions it does not produce soot. If a draft comes in and causes turbulence, some soot it produced where the flame goes off towards the side of the pot.

Then by adding a windscreen to block wind turbulance, there should be no problem with soot, ehh ?

Yes, a windscreen will help alot.

The soot given off is easily wiped off. It's not like the soot you get from a wood burning fire. No creosote involved. Just use a damp something to wipe it or if grass is handy, use it. Sand would be the best if it's available.
