18ml is not bad at all. 3ml to get it to bloom and 15ml(1/2 ounce) to boil

I got one of those Daren.
Dandy little setup. My burner and frypan looks slightly different than yours---maybe a older version.

I also have a Mini Trangia, the literature that came with it claimed that it has a new more efficient burner so as I have twenty year old Trangia 27 I decided to check it out.

The main comment that I can make is that the mini Trangia is affected by wind even slight breezes can reduce its efficiency where the old Trangia 27 has no problems with wind.

I consider the Trangia as the standard in alcohol stoves, it might not be light but it is easy to use, reliable and safe, stable, can keep unused fuel, adjustable flame, works in windy conditions and is very hard to beat for fuel efficiency.

The new and old burner look the same and I could only find one difference and that was the new burner had one more jet hole 24 holes as to the old burner 23 holes.

I have done quite a few tests with both burners in both of the stoves and the old 23 hole burner used less fuel every time.

These test where done several years ago and at this point in time I am unable to find the data, when I can I will do some new tests and put the results here .

Tony;

you made me look! ;)
both my Trangia burners have 24 holes.

the Mini was a gift last christmas.
i bought my 27-2 kit about ten years ago it too had 24 holes. i sold it when i bought the 27-8 about two years ago.

the 27-8 is next on the test bench.
