If you have it on low, it'll run for the entire night or day or around 9-10hrs. If it's on high, it'll last for about 5-6hrs. I've used mine in my tent when camping and keeps it warm for about 5-6hrs. Cooking will depend on how much you use it.
Yes you can with the proper adapter that's $6.99 on Amazon. This method will fill it about 2/3 full. Have used this type cylinder for years with my camp stove and Mr heater. Just recently came across an article on line via Google that shows how to construct a valve for about $30 that fills the cylinder all the way. I stead of $6 - $8 for 4 cylinders you can fill all 4 for about $2. Hope this helps.
It just depends on how much you will be cooking. We made hot apple cider and heated food up on several trips. It does last a while.
Depending on how many times you use it,, I took it camping for a week cooked 3 times a day with it, and still have some left in it.
The don't have the exact weight of the canister, but it's less than a pound. I am able to fit two canisters in my camping pots.

A better method than floating it would be to just weigh it on a digital postal or kitchen scale and do the math to get the exact ammount of grams remaining in you canister. 100g canister: 100g fuel; gross weight 194g; empty weight 94g (51.5% fuel by weight) 230g canister: 230g fuel; gross weight 356g; empty weight 126g (64.6% fuel by weight) 450g canister: 450g fuel; gross weight 645g; empty weight 195g (69.8% fuel by weight) Do this at home and you'll get a feel just by swoshing the can around how much fuel you have left in the field when camping.
Yes it will. 😁 I used one for 2 weeks preparing coffee, hot tea, and cooking 2 x a day for one. Then, took it on another camp out for another 7 days and I still have fuel remaining. I believe how fast it burns depends on elevation and temperature as well. Hope this helps.
No. I thought the same thing. But, no they won't leak. I camped in late April and mine is still good.
We sell these tablets as fuel for miniature toy steam engines. I know that they can be used for camp stoves, but have never tried starting firewood with them and so cannot answer your question. Let us know if it works!
What can anyone say about Esbit tabs that haven't already been said. They are everything you need. The fact that they are like putty and can be cut up makes then great for fire starters. If you have no kindling or it may be wet, the best thing is a tube of fire paste or an Esbit tab. It burns long enough to dry out small twigs or whittling shavings and get you some coals to get a good fire going.…
The Good: • Light up within seconds of using match or lighter • Burn slowly so give your model time to function and heat up safely • They fit right into my steam engines slide • You can break them up easily • They don’t really smoke much at all and burn up completely leaving not much to clean Other thoughts: • They do produce a smell that will fill any closed area… • These can be used in various applications, models, camping, survival, etc… The Bottom Line: I purchased these to heat up my steam engines an they work very well for that purpose.…
