Worked out well. The stovie mind looks at containers differently than the normal person. Good find. I found that the yellow canned Hershey syrup lid fits the Heiniken pot. ;)

I didn't have enough fuel to fill it up and do a proper test. I'm thinking about making another one with the lid on the reverse side....I think it's a better design, the lid might seal even better. I did a "smell test" around the edge (I'm a real scientist :lol: ) And I couldn't smell any fumes escaping. I'll keep ya posted. If I can find a good pot stand that folds flat and it passes my boil tests it might be my new stove of choice.

How much fuel can it completely absorb and hold it in suspension so it won't come out when turned up side down?

Looks good..good time and flame pattern /size!.Should work well and appears everything fits in the pot! ;) A windscreen should roll up inside the pot around everything also..

Now..weight when full of fuel? empty?..how many boils can you get with a full can,and how much fuel does it hold?Does it burn better full of fuel..or closer to empty?How much does it change?It'll be interesting to see those figures so you can figure how many meals you can get and how long you can stay out there on one can of fuel in the stove without packing extra.I know..questions,questions,questions.. :roll:
