easily available will these work thanks.
Regular isopropyl will work, however it burns dirty. The Methanol (Yellow Heet) burns perfectly clean. Coleman White gas, I tried that in my experiments as well, it burns big, fast, and dirty. All I can recommend is the Methanol alcohol, which is available from other sources, I just say Yellow bottle Heet because it's the most common way to find it.

thanks,

PS Just send out a few stoves, I was on the road for a few days, drove home through more damn fresh snow last night on Lost Trail
