    Sounds like I'm missing out on something important, what are we blaming Canada for? I really like poutine....

    You can’t be to hard on a country that buys things with Loonies

    I guess one of my latest Trangia burners is made for Canada as it has a very comprehensive text on the lid in english and french only, as it lay together with "norwegian" Trangia burner filled with norwegian kerosene(fyringsparafin) in a MSR cooking set i bought in Sweden I assume it was left there by a norwegian.

    have you tried using pure methanol it doesn't soot at all
    i always used to use it in my trangia's instead of methylated spirits for exactly that reason

    Hm, yes, here on the edge of 60N withonly one road to the Outside world, the only reliable source of trangia fuel I have is Bio-Ethanol, sold via Canadian Tire, meaning the store pays the shipping to here as an 'stocked on the shelf' item. The stuff burns more cleanly than Can.Tire Methyl Hydrate, which positively reeks as it burns. The 'Bio-Ethanol' was brewed up for ''indoor glass fireplaces''. Can't make up stuff like that!

    Still waiting to get over my cold, just about 100% better now, so a T-25HA trial soonish!

    Canadian Outdoor Equipment used to sell them, but no more.

    They must have been popular, as they were frequently sold out. I was unable to get the 500 ml size, but obtained the 300 ml and 1 litre a few years ago. As you said, they are excellent.

    COVID-19, presumably.

    Interesting. FWIW, I've never experienced problems using Canadian Tire Methyl Hydrate in a Trangia stove ... seems to burn very cleanly, at least in my experience.

    Amazon.ca has trangia fuel bottles.
