Super cat / fancy feast stove issues

Has anyone tried the Fancy feast stove? I am struggling to make the water boil.
I've only tried inside. And most of the time I am unable to bring the water to boil. I have noticed that when this is not working I don't have the jets on the side. Even when I use a primimg time of 2 minutes and more.

I think my denatured alcohol is not 'boiling'. I am using or was (I finished it) the digger surface cleaner vanilla. That s the only one that I found at bunnings (or in different perfume).

I am using the design from the kit on this side not the one with the carbon felt.

Any idea what can be wrong? My alcohol not alcoholic enough?

DO you have any idea where I can find carbon felt here?

Haven't had any problems with using methylated spirits.

Sorry mate,

I haven't made one of those stoves and know little about them, hopefully, someone else will be able to help you out.

Best of luck,

Keep trying.
