EkoFuel liquid bioethanol for alcohol camping stoves is a high quality bioethanol fluid based on rectified ethyl alcohol (ethanol) min 96% by volume. It has been denatured in accordance with Commission regulation (EC) 3199/93 to produce a liquid which burns cleanly and has very little odour, if any. We guarantee that the fuel we sell has been recified to remove a lot of the other alcohol normally present, producing a cleaner burning and smelling fuel. Not all bioethanols have had this extra process step.
EkoFuel key features:
- Fast lighting
- Ash free
- Safer than methylated spirit, methanol free
We have worked to ensure that EkoFuel bioethanol is high purity and unlike some other bioethanol fuels, it is not contaminated with acetone, so it smells like pure alcohol.
In ideal conditions, EkoFuel for camping stoves will burn completely cleanly with little smell, and no soot or smoke. However, depending on the design of the alcohol burner used with the fuel, some smoke and soot may be produced due to incomplete combustion if the oxygen around the flames is limited. We have run trials of the bioethanol fuel in a Trangia camping stove to observe the heat output, fuel consumption and soot produced. The results of these tests are given in the EkoFuel blog.
This premium quality fuel is suitable for use in alcohol burning camping stoves such as Esbit and Trangia stoves. If in doubt, please check the manual supplied with your camping stove to see if denatured alcohol can be used to fuel your burner. EkoFuel bioethanol can be used in a variety of camping stoves from open flame burners to pressurised alcohol stoves.
