About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Temperature limits?

Iso-butane is not useless. In fact, if you are using an upright stove you want the highest proportion of iso-butane that you can get: MSR IsoPro or Jetboil are good candidates. It's regular n-b...

Re: Re: Re: Temperature limits?
Learning is good. To be fair, most of the referenced article is about upright stoves, as that is where there are interesting effects that need explanation. However there is a paragraph about invert...
