Fathersday Limited Offer on Budlyte "Super Stoves"
I was able to make up a couple of dozen stoves using Budlite Bottles. Sale will continue till all are sold.
This stove is made from an aluminum beverage bottle. It's a 1 piece stove, no pot stand needed.
When 1/2 ounce of fuel is used this stove has the ability to absorb and hold the fuel as a safety feature. If the stove is accidentally tipped over the fuel will not spill out.(Just like the StarLyte)
This stove is a compilation of features found in several different stoves that I have made over the years. The StarLyte, Fancee Feest, Cobalt and Cobalt Blue.
Fuel capacity – 1 ounce – 30ml
Weighs 1.3 ounces
Will boil 2 cups of water under optimum conditions using 1/2 ounce of denatured alcohol and a 2.5 cup aluminum pot.
Material – Heavy duty aluminum beverage bottle
Recommended fuels – HEET in yellow bottle, Denatured Alcohol, "Meths" (outside the U.S.A.)
Price for 2 stoves, 2 4oz fuel bottles with flip top caps that can also be used on the HEET yellow bottle alcohol fuel.= $20.00 + $4.50 for shipping and handling- Total Cost $24.50

Never tried it, before but read Dan's thread (or an earlier thread of Zelph's) on this subject and noticed a comment that one happy buyer fired up his Zeplh using grain alcohol. To me, Heet yields better results than DA, where's EC/GA fall in the spectrum?Jun 20, 2012 at 2:01 pm #1888740

Loving my bud Light Stove.
I used mine all weekend without a hitch. I cant seem to get it to boil 2 cups on less than 5/8oz denatured alchohol though. Ive tried every trick I know and it just aint happening. Dead calm garage at 40* or 80* or out side with a breeze and different windscreens to get a nice draft and it wont do it. Im using a Snow Peak 700 pot & lid. Flame pattern looks great. Any tips would be appreciated! Im going to try it on my SP 1400 set tonite for kicks.
Thanks for the great work Zelph.Jun 21, 2012 at 5:44 pm #1889088

Try insulating the alcohol burner from a cold floor.

Jim, thank you for the compliment.
Titanium pots are noted for poor transfer of heat. Use a windscreen placed at least 1" from the side of the pot and have it encircle the entire pot. Needs plenty of holes at base of windscreen to allow sufficient incoming air from bottom.
All my stove test are performed under optimum conditions per stover manual 1010. 70 degree starting water temperature, calm conditions, denatured alcohol, 2.5 capacity aluminum pot with 5.5 inch diameter.
You cange any of those conditions and you'll get different results.
