RE: [pct-l] Fuel usage

>A couple of years ago in backpacker mag. there was info on fuel usage per

My MSR stove came with specs on boil times and minutes of burn time per
liter of fuel, (and other stoves might have them too) so since a lot of the
stuff you're probably cooking involves boiling water that should give you an
idea. If your stove didn't come with specs like that, I guess you could just
figure them out yourself - time boiling a liter and time how long it takes
to use up a whole fuel bottle, etc.
