I'm sure this has been asked to point of driving some people crazy but, can I use other fuel for my Jet Boil stove? The Jet Boil stove takes isobutane/propane (Jet Power) mix fuel. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've done the same. I have not conducted a scientific study on this, but I think the gigapower was the most fuel efficient, despite what JETBOIL says about their special mixture.

Coleman sells a 70/30% canister under the peak name and it's about 2/3rds the price of Jet Fuel when you get it at the Coleman outlet stores. They also have a large size canister (10oz I think) that works well on extended trips when it's above freezing. It's the only fuel I ever used before I got educated and sold my Jet Boil.

Savor Happy!
