Please define "best".
Best .. in what way? Cheapest (to buy, to run, both ???). Lightest (dry, with fuel for xx BTUs ???). For cooking for how many ? Over what length of time?
White gas ? Best in what way ? Certainly good for heat per unit weight (energy density). Alsao a cleaning agent so if spilt it won't mark your cloths .. makes them smell though.
-------------------- I use a Coleman 422 petrol stove .. refils from the bike. No looking for other fuels, good for one .. or slow for two. Does not leak .. smokes for about 30 seconds on start up .. after that it is ok. Does not flare .. well unless I've been careless.
