So I just got this nifty new setup, and I had a quick question:
The Trangias are highly regarded in many circles including ultrlight backpackers; the device is easily researched. Mine used about 1 fluid ounce of alcohol to boil a cup of water at 8,000 feet. If I recall correctly, the capacity of the reservoir is about 1 ounce.
Those are the two factors you want to determine, burn rate and work accomplished. You may need to improve the performance. I arranged my camping gear to act as a windscreen but that was inconvenient so I built one. ONce you kow how it performs in different conditions, you can anticipate how much fuel you will want to carry and, if you were traveling in wilderness, how much you want as a safety reserve.
After your trip, please consider coming back to this thread or starting a new one and tell us how your Trangia performed.
