Gas Stoves: How Cold Can I Go?

Postby hikin_jim » Mon Nov 28, 2011 10:18 pm

This is a complicated subject, affected by a variety of factors, but complex or no, I give the question my best shot on my blog: Gas Stoves: How Cold Can I Go?

I give both a simple answer for easy planning purposes and a more complex answer for those who really want to get into the details.

Have a look if you like,

When you say "Gas", you need to be more clear on the fuel type. I consider my white gas stove to be "gas." I'm not sure how to make it more clear other than maybe liquid and then canister.

Yeah, by gas I mean some combination of propane, butane, or isobutane in a canister.
If I mean gasoline, I'll usually say "white gas" or "liquid fuel".

There's a definite ambiguity in a country where when you go to the "gas" station, they sell you a liquid. :)
