Had to do the three legger this evening. I'll weigh it tomorrow. It's going to go under the 8 gram mark. That'll put it into the super-fly-weight catagory of stoves.

It was late at night!!!! 8 grams is not what I meant to say. My brain must have still been in the Volcano mode. Tony's new burner is 6.5 grams :D

Just a reminder, this is a complete stove (burner and potstand combined) fits inside the Heinekin Pot and also the small mugs and pots that are floating around. Once the fuel is in the stove it won't spill out.

The three legger comes in at a decent 11.5 grams which is 0.404 ounces

Here is a movie of how to put fuel in it. Take your time, use the poly medicine cup that comes with the stove. Squeeze the mouth of the cup to a narrow spout and pour the fuel slowly into the center of the stove.

Well, I've been playing with my 4-leg StarLyte most of the afternoon and I must, in all honesty, say I donut really care for it too much. For a Heineken pot, my FancyFeast stove is more stable (mechanically) and has a better flame pattern than the new StarLyte. I also think those legs will also fail at some point in time, although probably not for awhile, as I don't like how glowing red they get. I'm getting better boil times with the FancyFeast stove.

Just my input.
