    Hey Sam, for Canada just add a buck or two to your total, that'll cover us.

    Thanks,

    I just sent a PM and paypal money for two regular and one simmer. I am going to take the Vespa GT up to Nova Scotia from the Big Apple with a buddy riding a Vespa GTS. Once we get to Nova Scotia we plan on switch from hotels to camping for several days and we could use a small, light, easy to pack stove for a few meals and I think this will be perfect!

    I made one of the beer can models that uses the penny inside, along with a bent coathanger folding tripod. This thing weighs nothing and is very compact. I thought I was in stove heaven until I saw how much fuel I needed to carry in order to actually cook anything. I also have a stainless steel alcohol stove very similar to your design, and it, too, usually needs several refills to finish cooking a meal.

    My old Coleman Peak 1 is about a zillion times hotter, can boil and simmer easily, and with a full tank will cook several meals before needing refilling.
    As neat as it was to make one of these alcohol stoves, I think the weight savings is a wash because of the fuel needs. Your design is obviously larger and more robust, but I wonder if you factored the actual fuel requirements between it, and say a Coleman multifuel that uses unleaded gas right out of your motorcycle's tank? My guess is that the Coleman is probably the better choice. Granted, there are more parts and thus more potential problems, but if you keep them serviced properly and give them a good cleaning before the season begins, you should be good to go.

    Heck, if they keep increasing the ethanol in our fuel, we'll all be using alcohol bikes before long!

    You can cook dinner with either of these. Two or three meals worth of fuel fits in the plastic bottle. It's just a matter of what you feel like carrying.

    Got my two this afternoon. Fast shipping, and they look really nice. I was surprised how small they actually are in person, but that's great for throwing on the bike. Thanks again!

    Hi, these look great! If you ship to Europe (Norway) at all, how much would 3 regular ones (14 holes) cost me?

    I'm sure the stove is nice too, but figuring out how to make your beer drinking pay for itself plus some extra is just brilliant!!!! :dutch

    Well it takes drive, commitment and a certian type of personality to be able to do this for over 2 years providing nothing but excellent service.

    I just sent paypal for another SteverStove and 2 SimmerStoves.

    Thanks!
