Röd/rød sprit is Meths.Fair point..the burning was spilt " rod spirt " seems to burn a lot hotter than meths..
If you had a pressurised burner it was that. The flame is much hotter from those thse wih the same fuel as the Trangia (and copies) produces.
Blue flame = efficient, complete burning, no soot and very hot
Orange/yellow flame = inefficient, soot and just hot
The Trangia system was designed for the inefficient Trangia burner.
But the stand can easily be fixed with some darning with soft copper wires.
