How many chips total did it take to boil the water? It may be a tasty fuel but could be costly, but in a pinch... Light weight, food substitute, in case of bear, drop fuel and run, anything else?

I used what you see plus 5 more as the flame got low.It needs to burn to let the oil out that when you put more on when its hotter so the oil burns works like a candle corn chip is the wick oil in chip is the fire.

Oops, you may be on to something. Leave the alcohol fuel at home. Just bring corn chips.
Use your listerine CoolMint pocket mist to get your corn chips burning, burn the chips for flame, include some chips with lunch... then after lunch you can freshen up with the pocket mist spray.
No more "chip-breath". :eating:

Yep the coolmist works but not much in it and cost is hi. I got a better way on the right is a perfume sprayer witch can be refilled with alcohol as ls be good to put in your fire kit i order more to have.

Get one of those individual serving variety packs of potato chips, corn chips, cheetos, pretzels, etc. See which burns best. Use the whole bag. Light the bag to start the chips going and put all of those nasty transfats to a good use! :bird: :ciao:

Run them through a food processor to powder them, mix with gasoline to form a paste ball, have fun with it :)

It worked great in my mini trebuchet.

Rhino, maybe you should start your own pyromaniac website, where you can post all your ideas about gasoline and blowing things up. Seriously.

I've actually heard of people using hard sausage for fuel on a fire.

Mythbusters tried to use salami (or a similar sausage) to fuel a rocket ... it sort of worked lol.

Just because you can't handle the heat, doesn't mean you need to tell other people to stay out of the kitchen ... unless you're cooking that is.

Buy the salami that is plastic wrapped...much greasier.

The air-dried, unwrapped variety is less greasy, and much tastier! :ciao:

(Cheap, greasy bologna might work too!)

And lest I forget...MORTADELLA...98% grease...should burn quite well!
