I like to use these aluminum bottles for Supercats rather than the cat food can. You can cut them to a larger size and get more capacity. Here are some I made (the black ones are painted with heat-resistant paint):

I tried to make a much sturdier alky stove with one of those bottles but I didn't really have the right tools to do the job right. It would weigh a little more than a Pepsi can but the durability would out-weigh that in my opinion..I have found that the alky stoves, unless meticulously cared for are almost disposable. I blew this one but I won't give up because I think that it will be well worth my efforts with a more durable stove. When I finally get it built I will re-paint it with high-heat paint the same color that it was to begin with. The thing will look kool and I think will be more efficient if the stove can keep itself hot enough to burn without a primer tray...Hope this helps...Happy Trekking...sabre11004...
