I’m debating whether to take my trangia (alcohol stove) or msr petrol stove on a year long trip in South America. I was set on using the trangia but now i’m not sure. VOTES PLEASE! Trangia: PROs Can’t break, doesn’t burn your food. CONs Might be hard to find meths/alcohol, not too sure about performance at altitude or in cold. MSR: PROs petrol can be found cheaply anywhere, works well at altitude and in cold. CONs might block up with dirty fuel, complicated to fix, can be a bit violent spraying petrol everywhere so I wouldn’t be happy to use it in the tent.
