my comparative testing did not show as much difference as reported on this page.dlarson wrote:Thanks Darren! It looks like the boil time was increased by 1:30 to 2:10 minutes with titanium depending on the flame distance.
It seems like the increased fuel usage would be negligible for weekend hikes. For longer trips it could add up though.
depending on the burner, (i tested lots of different ones), the boil time increased by not more than 30 seconds. i'd call that negligeble even for a longer trip.
test pots were the MSR Ti Mug (4.5" round x 3.5" high), and an old aluminum camping pot (5" round x 4" high).
