There are many ways it could improved with little effort, got any ideas?

Only a fool would attempt to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together, it's a waste of energy, there are many easier ways. But you are right, a good old wood fire is a sure solution in any scenario (except for one where we kill all the trees ). This is just much neater and easier to work with when it comes to boiling water or cooking food imo. It definitely has its advantages (such as being a lot easier to use indoors).edit on 17/6/2012 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)
using a small amount of gasoline will impart the gas taste to what you are cooking
The fiberglass helps hold the fuel like a sponge so the vapors can come off evenly, but steel wool would not do that.
Now I would NOT (and I repeat would NOT) use steel wool. Steel wool will burn. And I mean it will burn very hot and quickly. For a fun parlor trick stick a 9 volt battery to a piece of steel wool.
