A backpacking classic, the renowned MSR WhisperLite is weight-efficient and burns widely available, inexpensive white gas. To keep the fuel line clean, it uses a Shaker Jet system. Just invert the stove and give it a shake before lighting. This greatly reduces carbon build-up and the need for field maintenance. The fuel tank is separate from the stove, so you can completely wrap the burner with the windscreen for efficient cooking even in windy conditions.

The output of any heat generating device is shown in BTUs (British Thermal Units) which measure the amount of heat energy needed to raise the temperature of 1lb. of water by 1°F.
Liquid fuel stoves require a fuel pump to pressurize the fuel tank.
Heat reflectors are placed under the burner and reflect heat back up towards the cooking pot. This helps save fuel and speed cooking time.
