Yes all us stovers were/are impressed with the jets burning out of those dual walled stoves, but that's just an exciting visual effect.
An open can burning alc generates just as many fumes as the dual walled stoves do....but with the open can you can't see any neat little visuals.

And Sterno is just jellified alcohol. I don't really think that you will find much difference there....and if you knock your Sterno over, there isn't a bunch of flaming alcohol running over the table. Be careful with liquid alc.

Don't get me wrong I love my alcohol stoves, but they aren't all that they are cracked up to be.

I hope you've found your oil leak...I got my fingers crossed for you.
