I thought it would be useful to have a table of the most common fuel names for different stoves by country.
The four fuel types are: Butane/propane gas for a canister stove, ethanol for an alcohol stove, naphtha for a "white gas" stove and kerosene for a multifuel stove.
I didn't see the need to include gasoline - you just go to a gas station for that!
For each fuel type, the most common name for that fuel is given, plus at most one alternative.
"Names" in quotes indicate a shortened name, if commonly used.
(Brackets) are used if the fuel is NOT commonly available at campsites and small towns in popular hiking areas.
It's a short table at present - please post the names used in your country (or corrections) and I will update the table.
Why the big white space?
