Wow, cool article, Will. This subject has been dealt with before but you've done a nice job with presenting it in a way that can be practically applied in a number of situations.
I will keep your charts handy. I'm a "four-pint-er" (4 pints boiled/day) hiker, and my typical cook systems these days include Esbit, top-mount canister, Powermax, and wood.
Other factors influence my decisions to take one system over another, in addition to fuel efficiency. Powermax is reserved for winter, so that's easy. Wood is for long trips where fuel weight of Esbit and canister is more than the weight of my wood stove.
I waffle between Esbit and canister for short and mid-length 3-season treks. I usually pick Esbit for shorter trips and canister for longer trips. Based on your data, I may have to rethink that.
I like canister stoves when the weather is foul, so I can cook in my tarp. Although, I've used Esbit and my wood stove under the tarp with no ill effects (yet). The smoke keeps the bugs away ;)
Anyway - great stuff, Will. Thanks for taking the time.
