Well, amusing all right, and thanks for it.
I have to wonder whether one might not be better off trading the weight of the stove and the tank and the pump for a bit more alcohol fuel and the very most basic alky stove possible – even one of yours or one of Tinny’s. (Oz sense of humour here.)
But still, as a demo of what can be done – interesting. Perhaps one could do the same with an XGK?

What would the purpose be of doing this? I would think Gasoline/Petrol would be the most commonly available fuel worldwide – more so than Alcohol, and Alcohol has less BTU per oz than most other liquid fuels. The advantage to alcohol stoves as that the stoves themselves are light, alcohol can be stored in a normal plastic bottle, and you can adjust the quantity of fuel you need for your trip. This stove is not light (I used to have one), nor the fuel bottle lightweight.Apr 9, 2019 at 12:33 pm #3587854
Perhaps the smell of petro based fuel may have something to do with it. I’ll ask him why he chose to spend so much time on this project. Maybe it’s just because nobody else has ventured to do it. Maybe Tinny has, he knows everything, done that, been there type of guy :)
