Camping Stove Question: Butane vs. Propane

Jump to last reply

We will be camping in Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite for five nights in August. Elevation is around 8800 feet. We normally backpack rather than car-camp, so we don't have a Coleman-type camp stove, and I was hoping to avoid buying one just for this trip. I was thinking of taking our two little backpack stoves, plus a large one-burner butane stove that I have for emergency power outages (but actually have only used for brewing beer, boiling the wort outside!)

I notice that all the campstoves on the market use propane rather than butane, and I'm wondering if there are any issues regarding butane at high altitudes? (Actually I should qualify that; the car-camp stoves I have reviewed all use propane, but my little backpack stove uses isobutane, whatever that is). I've tried searching places like the REI website for information, but can't find any. Can anyone explain to me the difference between propane and butane, and whether there are any altitude or pressure issues with the butane?

Thanks!
