Introduction: Pepsi Can Stove
so it can fit in any pocket boil water in less than two minutes keep you warm and it makes a great light backpacking stove.the pot fuel and windscreen can't fit in the pockets :( I did NOT come up with this i saw one at scouts and dicided to make an instructable!You can use Denatured alcohol HEET or nail polish remover for fuel.You can put this in your igloo, quinzee, lean-to for heat when not cooking.This stove uses 50% less fuel than others
Step 1: Cutting the Can and Inner Wall
the taller the can sides the longer the stove will stay burning. Cut two cans at the same hight.Sand the edges so you dont get cut if you want You can sand the paint of the side if you want a silver finish.Cut a strip of can from the middle of the can for a inner wall.cut a ridge out at each end on opposite sides then slid the ridges together to form the inner wall.
Step 2: Insulation
you add insulation from your attic any color will work. cotton balls and blown in insulation will work this is not supossed to burn and is to keep your fuel from spillin if the stove is knocked.Put the insulation inside the inner wall.put the inner wall and insulation inside thbottom fuel cap.
Step 3: Construction
place the top burner into the fuel cap you can crimp th edges if the fuel cap splits down the side its ok as only the fuel does not come out.
Step 4: Jets and Fuel Ports
us a large nail for the fuel port in the middle of the depression on the bottom of the can. us a small nail or straight pin for the fuel jets REMEMBER you can make the ports lager later so make them smal and then by trial and error make them bigger if needed.
Step 5: Pot Stand and Wind Screen
use a metal cloths hangerand pleirs to make apot stand by bending the ends into legs look at the pictures for better help.Use tin fiol and bend up th edges and slide the stand in then fold over the edges BUT LEAVE SPACE AT THE BOTTOM FOR AN UP DRAFT TO COME THROUGH. if you are cooking out of a can like some beans lay long nails across like a grate.
