Make your own Meths Burner

Postby robwa10 » 21 Apr 2010, 9:29am

As I was surfing on an outdoors forum looking at tent reviews I cam across this article. Thought it might be of interest to people. I'm gonna have to buy to cans of coke on the way home tonight to give it a try at the weekend.

There's no need to drink the stuff.
You can generally scavenge dead cans from the side of the road quite easily.

There are a whole lot of different designs that you can try.
