PyroPac Gel Fuel
Fuel, Gel, Diethylene Glycol

PyroPac Gel Fuel is identitical to MilPack Gel Fuel, except for the packaging. The PyroPac packaging is a different color and does not include the National Stock Number as the Military Version does. Other than that, the only other notable difference is the price. PyroPac, because of the lack of special military packaging, is less expensive. We offer both versions.

PyroPac is a heat source system developed by military experts with the needs of soldiers and humanitarian relief workers in mind. The system is based on a proprietary chemical flame gel that burns hot and clean with no smoke or fumes, and that leaves behind only sand. PyroPac will not freeze or melt and burns well up to 10,000 ft of elevation. PyroPac is non-toxic and so is safe for the environment. Its only byproducts are carbon dioxide, water and sand.

PyroPac can be used to boil water, dry wet clothing, or start an open fire. And because the gel is smokeless and burns so clean, the flame is almost impossible to see — a clear advantage in the battlefield.

PyroPac Gel Fuel, and its military counterpart, MilPack Gel Fuel, does not evaporate, freeze or melt. It is smokeless, odorless, nontoxic and water soluble. These Gel Fuels burn up to 1358 degrees F, much higher than competing products. It is non explosive, has an indefinite shelf life, is non hazmat and will even burn at a 10,000 elevation. In short, you will not find a safer, more versatile and functional survival gel fuel than PyroPac and MilPack Gel Fuels.

As a service to our customers, we sell these individually. Just choose the number you wish by adding one to your shopping cart, then changing the quantity. For your convenience, we also offer several of the most popular quantities as choices.

more about milpack/pyropac gel fuel

MilPack/Pyropac Gel Fuel benefits: (applies to both versions)


This 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 and PyroPac Gel Fuel is non flare, non explosive, non splash and does not produce toxic gases. It is safe to carry on aircraft.


These Gel Fuels burn clean and odorless, producing only CO2 and water vapor. They 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 and PyroPac Gel Fuels produce no smoke and only a clear blue flame, almost invisible in bright day light.


These Gel Fuels
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 and PyroPac Gel Fuel have an indefinite shelf life.
