Please help! Hi there, I am completely new to backpacking and MSR stoves. I have a brand new XGK EX and I’ve been trying to test it before I go backpacking next week. A friend suggested denatured alcohol would work fine, but I cannot seem to get a steady flame at all. I went and bought Coleman fuel and was able to get a steady blue flame. Why am I having trouble with the denatured alcohol? I am following the instruction manual and this fuel is listed on MSR’s website as appropriate for this stove. I know you guys will likely suggest your preferred fuel, but I have no other use for this fuel other than with this stove. I’d like to use it up if possible.
