I just see a blank post.
When selecting the post to read my Computer ask if I wanted to limit to "secured only or show all." I clicked the show button and the site came up.
Oh right. Liveleak is only in http so it's blocked as mixed content on our https site.
Build your own. Look for "Copper coil alcohol burner' as a search term.
I have a knockoff Meta 50 stove system, very efficient - using the common Trangia alky burner. No pressure, no worries.
Tough choice, cook your meal or drink your fuel!
Yeah Melbo, For some reason I could not see the link after I posted it , But then again I'm not the sharpest tack behind a keyboard , Sorry
Would JP-4 work in one of these ?
No on the JP4....

200-Proof Ethanol denatured with Isopropyl Alcohol and Methyl Isobutyl Ketone
by Duda Energy
Formula for Denaturing the 200-Proof Ethyl Alcohol: 100 Gallons of 200-Proof Ethanol, 10 Gallons of IPA, 1 Gallon of MIBK
Denatured alcohol has a variety of common uses
As a fuel for marine and ultra-light camping (backpacking) stoves. It is inexpensive, may be extinguished with water, and can be transported without special containers. However, safety concerns do arise from the near-colourless flame with which alcohol burns. A jellied and dyed form is used in the Sterno brand fuel "Canned Heat", and is meant to be ignited and used in the container.
As a sanding aid, as the alcohol helps to more easily remove excess dust because it does not open the wood grain the way that water does.
As a mealybug exterminator.
As a cleaning aid in removing ink stains from upholstery or clothes.
As a cleaner in daily housekeeping
As a solvent in shellac and shellac-based products.
As a less expensive alternative to pure ethanol in preserving biological specimens.
As a less toxic alternative to methanol in the production of biodiesel fuel. Biodiesel produced using ethanol is properly called fatty acid ethyl ester, whereas biodiesel from methanol is properly referred to as fatty acid methyl ester.
As a germicide in the removal of fungus from skin and coldsore treatment.
For maintenance of wicks in kerosene heaters and lamps to remove water contaminants and restore the capillary action of the wick. As a wick cleaner and a kerosene additive, adding approx. 1 teaspoon denatured alcohol per gallon of kerosene.
As a fuel for older toy steam engines which used a wick type or vapourising burner.
My son has started making these in bulk. A wee bit simpler, no weight and made out of 100% recyclable materials!
Liquid Fuel is a bit expensive. I used them in marine applications and backpacking. Beats gasoline smelling underware.
He replaced the jetboil that was too much for a single overnight trip. Takes up much less weight.
