For sure white gas is common and use backpacking in a variety of manufactured (non-DIY) stoves. I had never hear of it used in a DIY stoves. If it can be, as you say in thicker aluminum, then I'll have to venture into that arena some time. Right now on in soda can quality stoves.

PS - Gotta love this forum! All the right stovies in one place.
I may not be big... but I'm ... slow.

If that is the case, I won't bother with white gas. I tried a friend's Esbit stove and the smell was a big turn off. The performance was way less than marginal anyway.
Thanks for the heads up.
