I kept track of how much fuel I've used in my testing but stopped counting after my 11th gallon. Most of it was denatured.

Actually, I just got my wood burner prototype done last week and have barely even used an alcohol stove recently. I think my Heet bill will be going down.

Speaking of the Yellow container (methanol) Heet:
zenstoves reports, You may also be able to purchase this for around US$3 per gallon at race shops that sell it as race fuel.

ref: http://zenstoves.net/Stoves.htm

I like my MK1-UL and Woodgaz woodstoves, so much, I am re-thinking the small and lightweight alcohol stoves. I am thinking, I will reserve those for backup, for emergency kits, and, for UL backpacking.

I really like how compact the Woodgas folding woodstove is packed in the Tyvek cover.

I trimmed down the Tyvek cover to shirtpocket size. It is authentically a pocket stove, now. :D

Zen stoves must have a really good source for the racing fuel. Look at the price for this on line stuff:

Now you've got a "Modified" Woodgaz :mrgreen:

JRoger, we look forward to seeing your wood burner when ready :D

I went to Harbor Freight on the other side of town so I stopped at a WallyWorld over there and found 10 4packs. That should get me through the summer for sure with what I already have in reserve. :lol:

RR, always good to have a reserve. Makes good campfire starter in cold damp weather.

Was watching a video and they mentioned shopping for fuel in the paint department instead of the automotive department.

Methyl Hydrate.
