Military Gel Fuel, MilPack, Inc., NSN 9110-01-518-9201, PIIN W911QY-04-D-0025 ( Fuel, Gel, Diethylene Glycol)
MilPack Gel Fuel has been approved by the Defense Logistics Agency as the new, improved replacement for the old Trioxane Fuel Bars used by the United States Military for years. MilPack Gel Fuel is a great fuel for cooking, for your survival stove, as a fire starter or to simply start a campfire. All this utility and it is still safe enough to go on an aircraft!
MilPack Gel Fuel was originally designed to provide an efficient source of heat for the foot soldier and had to be safe, odorless, smokeless, non restrictive, economical, non toxic and yet friendly to our environment. With an indefinite shelf life, MilPack Gel Fuel is the perfect survival or recreational gel fuel.
MilPack Gel Fuel is a must for hunting, fishing, boating, camping, cookouts and sporting events. It works well in gel or solid fuel cookers to include the Crusader Cooker, Esbit Stove and the U.S. Military Canteen Cup Stove, just to name a few. It is also a safe heat source for ration components as well as a great fire starter.
Our Military Gel Fuel should not be confused with others selling "so called" military gel fuel on the internet for much cheaper. In most cases, this is not the Military Version as it does not carry the NSN number and comes in a tan package.
We offer MilPack Military Gel Fuel in 3 packs of 1.25 oz Mil Spec packets.
MilPack Gel Fuel benefits:
The fuel is a gel and therefore does not spill like liquid fuels, such as paraffin. Water can be used on spilled gel fuel to put the fire out. The gel can then be removed and reused by scraping it up. MilPack Military Gel Fuel is non flare, non explosive, non splash and does not produce toxic gases. It is safe to carry on aircraft.
MilPack Gel Fuel burns clean and odorless, producing only CO2 and water vapor. It can be used indoors and near children though care should be taken that it not be ingested. The problem with other products, like paraffin, is that they are poisonous and can cause asthma. MilPack Gel Fuel produces no smoke and only a clear blue flame, almost invisible in bright day light.
MilPack Military Gel Fuel, NSN 9110-01-518-9201, can be extinguished and reused. Each packet burns for about 12-15 minutes, long enough to boil water or get a roaring fire going. MilPack Military Gel Fuel has an indefinite shelf life.
