Different brand product received but all good, 24 March 2016

At first I was a little bit annoyed when I ordered this because I received instead "Vango bio-ethanol gel fuel" for some reason, which comes in a plastic squeezable bag. Although it is not exactly what I ordered I prefer the container so I'm not upset with it. Excited to give a try out in the highlands!
GO Outdoors says: Thank you for your review. This product has been re-branded which is why you received the Vango version. We are in the process of updating the product page to match.
Ridiculous container, 23 March 2016
By Cherry (Leeds)
Thee actual fuel is fine, I use it for DofE and the safety aspect is paramount. But, the tins it comes in are quite unsuitable. First off, it is impossible to open a tin without some fuel flying out in any direction (trust me, I've opened dozens). Secondly, it is exceedingly slow to get fuel out of the tin, and thirdly it is quite impossible to empty the tin, so not only is it already about 66% more expensive than meths anyway, but you waste loads of it. I have resorted to opening the base of each tin with a tin opener (not easy), scooping all the fuel out (or as much as I can reach, which is still not all, but more than you can get out the way you are meant to do it) and putting it into a 5l plastic container with a pump action top - which works wonders for quickly filling burners/pouches, and you can get at all of this very expensive fuel. To my mind this is how the stuff should be sold.

Not as hot as paraffin or petrol but does the job if you use plenty. Great as a primer for hexy blocks.

bought this stuff at the weekend from basingstoke store, very impressive. Burns very well an d gets things up to temperature quickly, found you need to follow the instructions and let the fames get holf so the 30 seconds before starting to cook are important. Bacon, sausage and 2 poached eggs all cooked perfectly. One of the most impressive thinsg though is that i dropped a small amount of the gel onto my wooden bench set light to it and it only burned the gel and not the wood so I figure its' pretty safe stuff - No fumes either. Convert from the meths and those awful tablets that take forever.
This stuff is amazing!!!, 18 November 2012

I bought the Fuel 4 gel from Stockport last week, never seen it before but the shop assistant recommended I give it a try opposed to meths while cooking on my stove which I use almost every weekend. OMG, I will never buy meths again, the gel sits in one place, no spills what so ever, generates great heat for cooking, no black soot marks on my pans and kettle, amazingly it's instantly cool when extinguished too. The litre tin is said to last upto 9 hrs, I haven't got this far yet but the 30ml or so I did use lasted quite a while. The safety element of the gel is brilliant, all round winner.
