I purchased a 2 burner Coleman liquid fuel stove for my road trip to the Grand Canyon. I used it nearly every day of my 2 week trip and it performed very well. However, the plastic bottle of Coleman fuel leaked in my car twice! Apparently the screw on lid will loosen, perhaps due to heat expansion and cooling. Anyway, that was a PITA. Fortunately I had plastic liners to protect the carpet. Am I glad I had those!!
I don't know what the solution is for this problem. Perhaps using the metal cans will work well. This is a serious problem and might cause me to get rid of this expensive, almost new unit and get a propane stove...

Just got it last month from these guys. Boils faster than anything else I've used and is so self contained that I took it along in my daypack for a quick hot tea on an eveing hike.
Neat and really good for backpacking, but quite dear......

I'm a Coleman devotee. But older is better. I have a 2-burner propane that is at least 10 - 15 years old. Very reliable and works perfect.

Got a new Coleman 3-burner last year and was disappointed.
The inst-start failed on one burner after only a few outings, oh well matches still worked.

And what dummy decided to make the side wind screens hinged to the stove instead of the lid? with the old stove I could adjust them if I need a little more frying pan space - with the new ones I'm "boxed" in.

Amen to the Coleman 2-burner. Love mine too!

Too bad newer models, (even Coleman), are going for "pretty" and "gadgety" now, instead of durable dependability. I bought an Insta-start last year that is already failing. (the insta-start part) But my "old" 2-burner is still working like a dream.

Well, i recently discovered this genius camp stove called a Biolite, which burns wood/kindling and generates electricity so that you can charge your phone/anything that uses USB, meanwhile there you are roasting some marshmallows, cooking your dinner or making some tea! how awesome is that!

It comes in a small version and a larger family sized one with a grill.

Okay, that Biolite stove IS awesome!

I recently got this Thermos Charcoal Stove. My uncle found it at a yard sale for 10.00. He gave it to me and it works great!

Like most of our camping equipment... it's "homemade".

This stove and oven was made 20 years ago, it's all stainless steel.

When it is two of us, we cook on a Coleman grill/burner combo with the propane stovetop in the travel trailer as a backup.

When just me, I tent camp and I use the Biolite mentioned above. I also carry a folding pocket stove as a backup.

I've been using Etekcity ultralight portable camping stoves. I bought it on a spur of the moment value of the day-great price.

Very small comes nicely packaged in a waterproof container the size of a small can of pepper-fits palm of the hand. The stove is one piece that expands, just screw it on to a bottle of fuel and you are done. Glad I bought 2 of them, one for my BOB and one for my camping van.

Another Coleman fan. But currently I travel alone most of the times, so I found these to be extremely good.
For the summer you cannot beat an MSR Pocket-Rocket. They are extremely light and work a treat as long as you are out of the wind.

For the winter I have an MSR Whisperlight. It is an amazing stove as long as you have good fuel. The only downside is when your water is boiled the stove will not turn down to a simmer. You have to turn it off. Not a real bugbear as it really is an amazing bit of kit.

I hope this helps.
