A few weeks ago there was some post about a new fuel. This fuel (Utility Flame) is a petroleum byproduct and when burned there is no sooty residue, just a hot blue flame and leaves a biodegradable sand substance. The gel can be extinguished with water and reignited. Utility Flame will burn on virtually any surface from water logged wood to snow and ice.

My website ( Mountain Trekker Equipment) has "Utility Flame" in a six ounce resealable containers. The package also come with an aluminum foldable stove. The packages can be mailed via USPS, UPS and Fedex without restrictions and also can be carried on an airplane. The packages I have are 6 ounces so they would have to go in checked bags. Price for the 6oz resealable package with stove is $10.99 + shipping.

The 6oz package will burn over 60 minutes. The stove will support a pot with more than 2.5 quarts of water. a cup of  water boils in approximately 3 1/2 minutes

That size burns for 20+ minutes and can't be resealed.  There is a different company that is putting more thought to a resealable package.  Making it a 
more hiker friendly.
