Thanks Wes. You can either use the denatured alcohol you mentioned, or get methanol "dry gas" a.k.a "HEET". The Walmart brand is 98-cents for a 12-oz bottle. I like running the stove on methanol more than denatured alcohol as it has a cleaner flame that resembles natural gas. If you have a racing shop near you, you can get methanol for $3.50-$4.00 a gallon.

Hogasm: thanks for letting me know it arrived OK.

Here's a pic of my daughter at this year's US Nat'l Championships, where she shared the podium (3rd place) with an Olympian, and a US Senior Team member:
