On a standard Whisperlite running (lighting) kero I was using about
60 ml per day for TWO people, no more. This went up to maybe 80 ml
per day for two in the snow. I allowed an extra little bit, maybe
25%, for melting snow, on snow trips. Petrol (white gas) consumption
is about the same.
What does MSR think people DO with their stoves to use that much fuel?
Or do we have the old story of "give the stove away and sell the
fuel"? Nah - not at the outrageous prices they charge for those
liquid fuel stoves.
