Generally speaking, it's good to choose the lightest, most compact type, unless you plan a short journey but a big meal and a lot of traveler.

In order to save the space of the backpack and reduce the weight, select the following features of the stove:

It can be separated from the fuel - many furnace can be separated from the external fuel bottle, so that it is easy to carry and not be damaged.
Folding or open - lots of the tripod, the base and the frame can be folded or removed, so it is easy to carry.

Below zero the combustion effect is not very good, on the contrary, butane, propane and isobutane mixture combustion effect is better in cold weather. The effect of pure propane above zero degrees Fahrenheit is good. Butane is not flammable at less than 32 degrees Fahrenheit.


The heating effect is good -- campers for moderate weather conditions that are easy to adapt, unwilling to choose carefully, and do not mind adding more weight to the luggage.



It is cheap, easy to find (sold everywhere), high heat, splash of oil droplets are not easy to ignite.


It is not very clean (with smoke and smell). It needs to be ignited (if it is more convenient to use other fuels), and it will damage the stove. The droplets of the splashed oil vaporized very slowly.


A cheap and universal fuel, unless it is a traveller who intends to go to other places outside the United States. (elsewhere, there may be no place to buy gas and butane mixture). It is not as clean and easy to use as gas or butane.

White gasoline


It's cheap and easy to find (it's sold anywhere in the United States). It is clean and flammable, and the splashed oil is easy to volatilize.


Volatile (spattering oil droplets are easily ignited) and need to be ignited (using fuel in a stove). It is difficult to find out outside the United States


Comprehensive performance, especially in North America, under any weather conditions, safe, cheap and efficient
