Leaves Sludge

The perfect and new Trangia stove is left with a gummy residue inside after the alcohol portion has been used up. While new the gel burns ok but it's basically ruined the performance of our Trangia burner.
Not happy.

I bought 5 litres back in 2015. I used about a third and have just gone down to test a new titanium cooker and all I got was smoke and more smoke. I thought after fifteen minutes it would burn, but no, just smoke. I tried it in an old cooker which worked fine before and now, smoke. This cannot have a shelf life. Extremely poor. Will return to Go Outdoors to see what they have to say.

Bio Fuel Gel

I used the bio fuel gel for the first time on a recent camping trip. I used to use Meths but the gel is far superior and easier to use. I would definitely recommend this product. I used the small pouch which is ample for a weekend's camping.

Different brand product received but all good

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

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.

Good To Go

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