I have tested my Trangia and thought I'd give out my thought of it. After having cooked with alcohol at 1.600m and higher, in dreadful rain, wind and close to freezing temperatures. I found that the higher up, the less efficient it becomes (obviously) even though it still cooked my food perfectly, just took much longer and used up much more alcohol. In very cold temperatures, it also worked yet it took an extremely long time to kick in, still, once it did - again it cooked my food perfectly.
I guess it depends on opinions and personal preference the use of alcohol - but as from some while back, it is an indispensable piece of equipment in my kit.
Just thought I'd leave my two cents. K.m
