I got my GVP Cook System a couple of days ago and have spent the last couple of nights messing with it trying to figure all the little details out. One question I have is "what kind of boil times have people been getting with alcohol and esbit?" It seems to me that the esbit is lighter, but takes more time. In a perfect world, the most efficent would be the lightest, but I guess nothing is perfect.
On the question of boil times, I was getting about 7:30 with Esbit and right around 7:00 with alcohol. It was about 59 deg outside with a slight wind and cool tap water. Do these numbers seem pretty "normal"?
One thing I do like about the stove his how efficent it is. It might not be the fastest boil time, but less than one ounce was bringing 2 cool cups of water to a boil. I think the best result I got was 2 cups boiling with .8 oz of HEET.
If anyone has gotten faster boil times, or more efficent use of alcohol, please let me know how. Also, I would like to know what some people's over all opinion is about the GVP cook system. What are your likes and dislikes?
