    To many holes, the fuel/wood would burn to quickly. You want to reach gassification.

    Good stuff mate. I love the versitality of these kind of stoves, especially when hiking for over a few days. I use a trangia burner when it’s not possible or convenient to burn wood in it. Whenever you can use wood though it saves on meths and makes it go further, certainly makes the bergan a bit lighter not having to carry as much fuel. I’ve tried all sorts of stoves which all have their pros and cons but this type is the one that works best for me.

    stick a roll of toilette paper in the same size can with no holes ,pour in some gasline antifreez (for all you snowmobilers out there)you have a very hot stove ,boils a kettle in less than 5 and burns clean if your in a survival situation…all your carrying extra in your pack is the can,which you can place the tp in to save room…use a coffee can with a cover and its reuseable saving fuel
