Hi just a quick question. Approximately how many hours of cooking
time can I expect from a gallon of coleman fuel used in a regular
sized coleman camp stove? Some of the camp stoves are saying
approximately 2 hours burn time in the descriptions of the stoves
but is that just burn time per fill up of fuel in the fuel container?
Any help you can give me on this would be much appreciated!
Here is an answer from Coleman:
"I'm not sure I fully understand your second question, but I think I can
cover the bases with this answer. The two most common liquid fuel stoves we
sell are the compact model (available in Dual Fuel and Coleman-fuel-only
models, # 424-700 and 425F499T, respectively) and the Powerhouse (#414-700),
both are two burners. The burn time of the compact models is 2 hours with
both burners on high. Fuel tank capacity is 2.5 pints. Therefore, a gallon
of fuel will run the stove 6.4 hours with both burners on high, which could
be considered a minimum run time as one does not usually cook with both
burners on high; the exception would be boiling water constantly. The
Powerhouse, which is larger, has more powerful burners and a larger fuel
tank, has a run time of 2.3 hours with both burners on high. With a fuel
tank capacity of 3.5 pints, the run time for a gallon of fuel is 5.29 hours
with both burners on high."
I hope this answers your question. Thanks for visiting GearReview.com.
