Ken, were your 12-10 tests without the stakes like the Starlyte tests? Your post indicates this, but perhaps you actually used the 12-10 in the original manner in which it was intended (with the stakes)?
Regardless, I get similar results. With the original Starlyte I get similar boil times as the 12-10, slightly longer total burn and all the advantages that come with the Starlyte (no stakes, store fuel inside, spillproof, lights easy in winter).
Thanks for sending that kit Dan! It's gonna be great.
