There has to be at least 15 styles of soda can stoves. That one is different. Very simple, very cool.

When I was in school around 10 years ago I had to give a "How To" speech in one of my classes and did mine on

Everclear is better. You can use it for your stove, as antiseptic for wounds, and to drink lol.

If you have to buy it, might as well buy some denatured. It burns hotter and cleaner.

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.
