A Primer on Camping Stoves

What makes a good stove for bicycle touring? First, the stove has to be small and light. I've seen some stoves that weigh a ton. For the most part, they work great, but mostly disqualify themselves because of the weight. Next, fuel has to be available. If a stove runs on canisters that you can find only in certain large cities, that's not going to do you much good. The most readily available fossil fuel, automotive gas, isn't very good for your health or for your stove, so try to stay away from that as an option.
