These are the new 6x pack ethanol gel fuel tablets and folding stove by BCB, as now used by the military and outdoor enthusiasts .

As per this link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BCB-FireD...hash=item2cbbed8f61:m:mMB3PS_L1Gy2Xkj-ONlh8Rw

Ours for £1 a 6xtab fuel pack and £1.50 per stove. I'm yet to work out P&P but obviously at cost. Combined postage across GBs fine. (Update: P&P is likely £3.50 but could be combined with other GBs like cyalumes)

BACS preferred or maybe Paypal if BACS a major issue.

Alone now.
I found this stove a while ago and quite like it. I line the burn tray with foil to aid clean up. If I was over there I'd be all over this deal as it's a lot cleaner and less smelly that Hexi or Triox tablets.

One thing I did do was to get some wide clear packing tape and cover the foil lids to the fuel tablet tray. I more than once accidentally pierced the foil causing the fuel to evaporate.

I'll request funds when I've secured the fuel and I'm ready to post.

Note: Shipping for >2kg-15kg is £7. So if you want more from the group buys there is plenty of scope there.

I like the look of these for a light, easy option but, how long would one gel tablet burn? Enough for a brew? 3 tabs to rehydrate and heat a meal? Just trying to find out enough to justify a purchase :)

Check out funkyprepper putting it through its paces:

[video=youtube;nM-0CCuxcAg]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM-0CCuxcAg[/video]

It also works when wet, doesn't produce toxic fumes, can clean and sterilise your hands, doesn't soot your pans etc.

The Fire Dragon BCB stove has the built in tray that retains the fuel as it liquefies on burning.

Thanks Midnitehound, that was one of the ones I found and tipped me over the edge :)
