Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default My camp stove

It burns an Isobutane/Propane mix fuel. It will boil a cup of water in about 1 minute. Perfect for instant coffee and Lipton soup while I'm camping.

I took a Whisperlite International to Africa and never used it as there as plenty of fuel for fires. We had a Mandela microwave that cook a lot of stuff in the fire.

How does the fuel come for those. A bottle like propane?

I found it. Looks like a low pressure system.

Yes. A pre-canned fuel.

How much burn time do you get on an 8 ounce can?

Quite a bit from what I've been reading on camping forums. You can get 4 oz, 8 oz, and 16 oz cans. One guy said he cooked every meal for a three day camping trip with a 4 oz can and had almost half left. I don't know what kind of cooking he did. That would make a significant difference.

It also depends on how high you run the flame. I have heater meals for most of my meals when camping. I want the small camp stove for coffee, dried soup, and hot chocolate. I'll try it out before going on my trip heating water for hot chocolate at home and get a feeling how much fuel it uses.

I have two 16 oz containers and I'm going to pick up a couple of 4 oz containers as well.

Looks like something I wouldn't want to step on out in the field.
