White gas is highly refined gasoline, and not something that I want to carry a lot of on my boat, especially inside the cabin.

Alcohol stoves (like the Origo) are a lot simpler, effective, and safer.
Mine doesn't do all that, I have a multi-fuel version that also uses kerosene. Like I said, I like it, the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have a good surface on top so only works when your boat is very steady.

Let us know how it works.?
What model are you using.
It will be interesting to know how many amps it draws.

Which panel are you using?
What kind of real world output are you getting?

David... the solar panels are in Savannah, GA... I'm up here in Seattle... so the panels will not be installed on the dodger till I get the sailboat down there... but regarding the power it's 144 watts at 12v and it's very efficient at charging 2 banks of 12v batteries... I have two of these panels and looking forward to getting them installed.

Regarding the inverter... make sure it is a 'pure sine wave' type inverter... mine is a 2000 watt Prosine unit... very costly unit >$500... brought it some time back in Savannah and brought it up here with the cooktop... it works perfectly.

I'll take a picture of the unit tomorrow sometime... try to post it online...
