43441Re: [John Muir Trail] Re: How much Fuel
- Jun 19, 2014No need to apologize. I wasn't looking for the information as I know well enough how much fuel my stove uses. I was asking from the perspective of someone who doesn't have any idea.
That thru-hiking link pretty much matches what I've measured with my stove when testing it indoors with room temperature water. But in the mountains I find I burn more fuel. So the at home test only provides a lower limit. And it doesn't address cooking time at elevation. Some of us actually do more than boil water.

No one appears to have an exhaustive chart of stoves, temps, altitudes, etc. Usually it's just a review one guy does of one stove that impresses him so much he has no reason to try another.Here is specific fuel use info for the MSR pocket rocket: http://thru-hiker.com/articles/pocket_rocket_test.php
That said, this page might have what you want, if you have a subscription:
Then there are a few sites with generic guidance on total stove+fuel weight carried per day, with useful graphics:
