9 NE-II-177 Types of Stoves 5 Integral Fuel Container – fuel container connected directly to the stove External Fuel Container – fuel container is separate and connected by a fuel line

10 NE-II-177 Types of Stoves 5A Integral Fuel Container - This type of stove has the fuel container connected directly to the stove. External Fuel Container - The fuel container is separate from this type of stove and connected by a fuel line. There are many types of backpacking stoves that range from the basic to the exotic. The stove you choose will depend upon your requirements, such as ease of handling, weight, bulk, and type of fuel. Backpacking Spring issue evaluates backpacking stoves Pass around Campmor catalogue with stoves highlighted

11 Types of Fuels Liquid – white gas, refined kerosene and alcohol Compressed Gas – propane, isobutane and propane/butane mix 6

12 NE-II-177 Types of Fuels There are two types of fuels available for backpacking stoves. Liquid – white gas, refined kerosene, and alcohol. Liquid fuels require being transferred into an external or internal fuel cylinder depending upon the stove. Compressed Gas – propane, isobutane and propane/butane mix come in one time use cylinders. 6A

17 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Use the heat shield between the stove and the fuel cylinder. Hand tighten pumps and cylinders. When removing a fuel bottle, pressure must be released slowly to avoid spraying or spilling fuel. Be careful not to cross-thread gas fittings when connecting them to a stove or fuel line. Never store any fuel, either compressed gas or liquid, inside a tent or sleeping area. 9

19 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Always operate stoves on a flat stable surface that is free from burnable material. If the stove is designed to burn multiple types of fuel, pick one and stick with it. DONT MIX! Fuel bottles should be treated the same way. Always follow manufacturers instructions. The most important safety feature of any stove is a trained operator. 10
