Backpacker Magazine for March '97, in their equipment review, gives fuel
consumption for different brands/models of gas stoves. For instance, they
report that a Whisperlite Shaker Jet stove will burn for "136 minutes on 22
ounces of fuel." Using this info as an estimate, one should be able to
determine approximately how much fuel they will need (then take some quanity
as a backup) for a given time period.
