It looks like there is sufficient interest, so I'll be making up some kits.
So what do these numbers mean?
The numbers on the left are quantity of water boiled with the amount of fuel indicated for each batch. The numbers on the right indicate efficiency given by percent. I used the spread sheet prepared by "russb" I have to ask him how his calculations are formulated.
Ever since I've been tinkering with stoves the magic number that always seems to come up is 1/2 ounce.
1/2 ounce of fuel to boil 2 cups of 70 degree water. A stove that can do that was always said to be a good stove.
This is the first time I did an efficiency test using a spread sheet. Tomorrow I'll stick in the numbers to show the time taken to boil and the length of burn.
