I searched the forums for "dry gas" and didn't return any threads that matched that exact phrase, so if I'm missing something, feel free to point me to the appropriate thread.
But several weeks ago, when I was trying to decide whether or not to go with an alcohol stove (which I eventually did - the caldera cone system), I was talking to a man in a store who said he uses "dry gas" in them, rather than denatured alcohol, because "dry gas" burns clean (no soot) and is nearly odorless (as opposed to denatured alcohol, which he said smells like paint thinner).
I tried looking up "dry gas" online to see what exactly the stuff is, but according to wiki, it refers to any number of alcohol-based substances used as an additive to gasoline to prevent freezing. And depending on the brand, it can be different sorts of alcohol.
I tried calling the guy back to ask him what, specifically, he uses and where to get it, but he's on vacation for the next ten days. And I'm an impatient little creature, and want to try out my new stove.
So, the question is: does anyone know what substance he's talking about? and can anyone vouch for its use in my alcohol stove?
