People have been using HEET for a long time, but that stuff puts out some toxic fumes and it's kind of falling out of favor.

I made these and have tried many different models and fuels. I will have to find the article about the fuels but the first fuel I tried was denatured alcohol because I had some on hand. The article mentioned that you never know what you are going to get with denatured alcohol because there are no requirements that state a certain product has to be used to dilute the alcohol. The article was extreme saying what one might use. I've ended trying heet and isopropyl alcohol as well after a few burns with the denatured alcohol the stove was brown and dirty but I think it burned the hottest. I just ended up going with the heet since it seemed to be the easiest to find. I had a scout troop build these and use them on the back pack trips and they work great. I've boiled water in less then three minutes.

HEET is gas line anti freeze. Get the gas line stuff for less at an auto store. I just use isopropyl alcohol myself.

Cooked a couple meatballs on the stove today... worked great; I adjusted the side dents and that made it burn much more evenly.

I built one last night and it boils a pot of water in about 6.5 minutes. Great little stove! Only negative I can see is its very sensitive to any type of wind and it seems that when a pot is on it a slight breeze could blow it out.

Wonder how it would work if you built a shield? Like a double wide can that the pot would actually sit on?

Like something a bit of a wider diameter?

or maybe the shield from a MSR stove too.
