Some Trailspace members have asked to see some of my MYOG stoves, this is one that I actually use.

This is a little remote canister stove that I designed and made and use for solo walking, as a remote canister stove it will works in temperatures down to -20C, I call this stove, Super Ultra Ultra Light stove (SUUL).

While I am not going to claim this is the world’s lightest remote canister backpacking stove, I am yet to see a lighter stove, especially a backpacking stove that is usable in the field.

When I first developed this stove, its weight was under 10 grams, but I had problems with the pot supports and fuel line and found that I had to beef up these parts to make the stove more reliable.

The stove is made from Aluminium, Titanium and a little bit of Stainless Steel, the total weight of the stove in its basic configuration is 16.8 grams (0.592oz) , in this configuration it uses the standard canisters, I have made an adaptor so I can also use Coleman Max canisters which then brings the weight up to 26.6 grams (0.938 oz). The pot supports are designed to fit under a JetBoil PCS pot.

I had my SUUL stove CO level tested and the results are very good and the CO levels are low enough that it is suitable to use inside a tent.                       

                                                Avg CO ppm           

Start, low power                                    5.6           

Low/medium power                                4.8           

Medium power                                       5.9           

High power                                            10.4

very high power                                     14.4

Please note; I do not make this stove or any other of my stoves for sale, so please do not ask.

Really impressive work and design, Tony. Have you  considered or looked into patent and production?

 Thanks everyone for the comments, they are appreciated.

Hi Gozan,

I did spent some time looking into producing a stove for production, the costs in doing so where beyond my resources. To sell a camping stove in Australia, it has to be approved and that alone cost around A$10k, as for a Patent, last time I look into it, a world wide patent cost could cost up to $250k.
