If you’re too mean to buy a camping stove, then providing you have the time, the tools and the skill then you can can safely make your own meths stove at home. Not only  are Pepsi Can Meths Stoves free to make, it’s also inexpensive to run and is one of the lightest stoves available.


All you need in the way of raw materials is an empty drinks can. This is usually a 330ml can, but you can go for a can of Red Bull and create a really tiny stove.

Alas, we lack the skill to make anything at Mud and Routes, so for those of you who want to give this a go, then you can try thisthis or this link for a step by step guide.. We’re thinkers and dreamers, while they’re the finishers.

      I’m not sure if that’s because I’m an admin – hopefully it’ll work for you!

    Unfortunately, you can’t post images on the comments at the moment. We’re looking to upgrade the messaging to run from G+, Twitter or Facebook and hopefully that’ll allow that.
