One potential downside to using meths stoves is inability to keep them burning for long periods … you put fuel in, light it and once it’s burnt that’s it. I said potential problem because if all you’re doing is boiling a certain amount of water, then (with a little practice) you’ll know how much fuel is required to achieve it. However, if you want to do a little more, then that potential problem could become a reality. Which might mean having to refuel and relight your stove a couple or more times.
Please don’t light one on a wooden floor!

The 22g RF (Remote Feed) stove is a way round the problem. Your fuel is stored in a bottle and the bottle feeds the stove directly. The fuel bottle has a capacity of 150ml so it should contain more than enough fuel to cook whatever you can dream up. The inside of the stove contains a one way suction valve that prevents the fuel in the stove been drawn back out and there’s also a secondary fuel line clip just in case. You don’t have to remove your pot or wait for the stove to burn out before refuelling, you can top it up at any time.

The fuel hose is pretty special stuff, it looks a little like silicone hose but isn’t. It’s something called Tygon, it’s what the US Air force use on their fighter drones. It’s guaranteed not to harden, crack, perish or generally stop taking your fuel from the bottle to the stove … it’s also very expensive!

Although it’s called a 22g it doesn’t actually weigh 22g … that’d be too good to be true. The all in weight including stove, fuel line and fittings is 48g which is very respectable given the burn times available.
