    Thanks Paul,

    I know of Espacher etc, there are also some nice (but very expensive) drip diesel units such as taylors.

    I mainly want a very small woodstove that I am designing to my requirements. But just want a backup in case wood is unavailable.

    Origo stoves (in my first post) are pretty safe I think, I am certainly much happier with my origo stove than the old butane one.

    The other solution is that I could just make the stove 3cm wider and it would take the origo cartridge with circa 8hours burn time. But 230mm square stainless box section is not widely available, whereas 200mm is..

    Thanks

    Sam

    Now having second thoughts about alcohol and considering diesel.

    Seems like I could use these with a 1.5l tank: http://www.campmor.com/primus-1-5-l-fuel-bottle.shtml

    Two questions:

    1. How often do you have to pump these stoves to keep them going? every 10mins? 20? half hour? Longer?

    2. Can you get a longer fuel line for these stoves, the supplied ones seem quite short

    Thanks
