What does everyone typically pack in for fuel canisters? I am debating on just packing one canister for a 4 day archery elk hunt with some spares in the truck. Just trying to see what everyone else typically packs in. This will be a solo trip so don’t have another guy to pack his own. Typically boil water twice daily. Breakfast and supper. Thanks for any input

I did a test once with my reactor and a 100g fuel canister. It was about 55° outside and I was using cold tap water. I was able to get 22 two cup boils if I remember correctly.

You'll be fine with one 100g can.

They are very efficient! I usually take 2 cans with me on a 10 day hunt and boil water for 2 people. And normally I don't even burn through one can. You'll be fine with one can.
