I'll be looking for fuel for an alcohol stove. (The brand name is Trangia, but the generic category is alcohol stove and includes "cat can" and "soda-can" DIY versions.) It will burn a fairly wide variety of alcohol or methanol fuels. The great advantages of such stoves for travel are that they can legally fly(without fuel) in checked baggage, and that fuel is usually pretty easy to find upon landing. In the US, I use HEET fuel line de-icer sold at many gas stations in yellow bottles. In Latin America, one would buy high-concentration rubbing alcohol at a pharmacy, or a cheap highly distilled drinking alcohol. (Denatured alchohol with a high concentration of alcohol works fine, but rubbing alcohol at the dilute concentrations commonly sold in the US doesn't.) I expect a vodka or aquavit could be used in Iceland, but at too high a cost to be a good choice. Google searching has pointed to this quote: "We both used home-made beer-can alcohol stoves. The fuel we used was something called Rod Spirit, available at gas stations by the name T-Röd (it's pink). This isn't exactly denatured alcohol, but worked fine... though it was really sooty" Anyone have a better suggestion?
