I recently made an alcohol stove. once again my dad said it wasnt legal for scout use, because it has liquid gas. does anyone know if they are "legal" for scout use.

For safety questions, the answers can be found in the Guide to Safe Scouting.

For your specific question, please read Chapter VII -- Fuels and Fire Prevention. Based on this page, the use of liquid fuels is allowed provided you follow certain rules.
