    Here's some do-it-yourself / beer-can alcohol stoves. Each link has some good ideas. Were I making one of these, it would be a Frankenstein stove for I would have borrowed one or two ideas from each of these sites. Here are some takeaways: use fiberglass inside the can to prevent fuel spilling (as does the Zippo lighter), use 91% isopropyl alcohol not 70% (even 91% soots), and place a nickle over the fill hole.

    Here is a fellow providing a video of how he pulls apart a Fancy Heat can to fill it. Don't discount this fellow because he is silly. He has some good information ... except for using 70% rubbing alcohol. Must use 91%. or other more pure alcohols.

    On the web, there are dozens and dozens and dozens of links to do-it-yourself alcohol stoves.

    How about using a syringe and needle. This way, the fill hole would be ultra tiny.

    One video link I included above has the fellow pulling the can's centrally located lid out with some pliers. I'm wondering if I can pack in some fiberglass to make a safer unit.

    Thanks for bringing up this topic. If in a survival situation all one wants to do is heat up a can of whatever, why start a fire. One just needs a metal cup (food cans are lined with plastic these days) and a tiny alcohol burner.

    Here's the best video I've found:
