Esbit Solid Fuel Tablets

rated 4 of 5 stars Work well. Not odorless, though! I almost feel a bit silly leaving a review for these — they're so straightforward.  Esbit tabs are compact, fairly easy to light with a match or lighter, and quickly put out a good amount of heat. I use mine in the Esbit collapsable (Pocket) stove and can rehydrate a meal with one tablet in a reasonable amount of time. The packaging might say odorless, but I don't think that's true. Maybe I just have a sensitive nose, but I need to keep these in a double ziploc… Full review

Primus PowerGas 110 g

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Does not burn well in cold compared to others. The price compared to other canister fuels is great almost $1 cheaper then other brands. I use this on day hikes in winter on my Jetboil Flash. The burning is erratic and hard to light compared to the Jetboil fuel. This may be a brand specific issue.  In warm weather fuel works great, just have had cold weather performance with this fuel. I did use this under similar conditions as did the Jetboil, fuel so was an apple-to-apple comparison. Full review

Lite Cylinder LC-10-30 3 Gallon Propane

rated 4 of 5 stars It is green! Something to replace those one pound propane cannisters without the "expense" of a steel cylinder that needs an additional fuel guage. This is a lightweight fiberglass composite tank that you can actually see the level of propane. You will always be assured that when the coffee is on the propane will last until the last drop is made. I purchased a Century two-piece safety post that was delivered last week; it was checked and found all that I expected from a Century product. At that… Full review

Primus PowerGas 110 g

rated 4 of 5 stars I have the 16 oz, bigger, canister. The gas mixture burns great even in high altitudes. It takes relatively less space than that of the same size Coleman canisters, but it is still bulkier than the slender liquid fuel canisters. Lindal connector screws well to any type of technical stoves. I guess smaller sizes are much more manageable inside the pack. Good fuel, it will do the trick unless, I am guessing, one is not over extreme altitudes. Full review

Primus PowerGas 110 g

rated 5 of 5 stars Works very well burning a bit faster than other fuels on my Primus Multifuel. I have used other Lindal connector fuels with this stove and feel that Primus suits it best in the combinations of gases. Full review
