I LOVE my gigapower.... I tried the cat-food-can stove and a home made cone, but after three trips, I switched back. Screw the weight difference, I want my gigapower. I used coleman fuel cans my first few trips, then switched over to the smaller gigafuel or whatever they call it. The small can fits my 700ml snow peak mug. The only bad thing about the cans is I'm never sure if they will last the trip. I have several half-used ones for that reason, but I keep them around in case the power goes out, or if I want to test recipes at home before hitting the trail, so they come in useful eventually.
To keep track of how much fuel you have left approximately I mark on the can with a marker how many meals I have done with it as all I usually do is boil water. That way I know how many more boils I can get off a cannister.
