Ok, I'm looking for cold hard facts here. When I hike I carry a Pepsi can stove and get approximately 3 weeks from 20 ounces of fuel. Most of the time it is boiling Raman noodles but I do throw in Mac and Cheese or Rice meals, etc....
So what I want to know is, based on a meal divergence of 3 nights Raman, 2 nights Mac and cheese and 2 nights "other" what would be the fuel necessary for the Ion vs. 20 ounces for 21 days?

Thanks all for the input.

Any idea how much water you boil on average per meal?

he is probably going with 1 cup on average (raman)

refer to SGT Rock's fuel consumption of alcohol stove page for water temp/volume data per given amount of fuel - I found it to be pretty darned accurate compared to my stoves. Where I had faster boils, I also had shorter burn times and less fuel efficiency.
