Here is the info from the Origo site:
"A full container provides about four-and-a-half hours of
cooking time at the maximum setting, or about 10 hours at normal setting before refilling is required."
I have been using one of their stoves (model 6000) for over 15 years. Same burner in all models. I do not keep a record of time between refills, but their claim seems about right.
We carry a spare gallon of alcohol, and never seem to run short on a two week vacation cruise. We use the oven fairly often also.
I have a Origo 2000 (single burner) and that seems about right for me. I mainly use mine for making coffee in a stove-top espresso maker, or for heating up soup/leftovers/hot-cereal occasionally, so I only use it for a few minutes at a time. But, a single fill (~1.5 liters) lasts for several weekends of that kind of use.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
