    Details

    For heavy use in rugged terrain.

    MSR made its Fuel Bottle from a single piece of aluminum and added an air-tight seal so there's less leaking and cracking. The Fuel Bottle works with the threaded pumps on your MSR stove. Holes in the shaft of the bottle cap prevent spills and provide more controlled pouring capabilities. You can store and transport your MSR fuel pump in the Fuel Bottle once the bottle is depressurized.

    Volume to go the distance.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I do a lot of bikepacking and touring where I am out in the middle of no where for long periods of time. I went with the biggest volume canister to allow me to do just that!

    And it still fits neatly under my downtube with out pedal bite.

    Volume to go the distance.

    Great price for a great fuel bottle!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is a wonderful bottle, holds plenty of fuel for a few trips, depending on length, and rugged enough to go everywhere you do...

    Great bottle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Had this bottle for over 10 years, still works well, the cap I have is the old type that tightens down on a O-Ring, and its finally starting to crack after many years of use, still have the tag on it $7.95, apparently things have gone up in price, none the less, it'll last you forever. Mine as well have one in each size!

    It does its job

      What can one say about a metal bottle? It works. However I suggest wrapping it in duct tape; I've heard of people touching it full in the winter and getting frostbite. Something to do with the temperature of the gas inside. Solid though, mine has many dents

      You're not going to get frostbite from touching the bottle, the frostbite risk is from spilling fuel on your skin- so don't do that. (though I've spilled a bit of fuel on my hands in winter and been fine, it sure is cold, and in extreme environments I could see that being a big problem).



      Touching any cold metal object will make you lose heat faster, so just wear gloves and minimize direct contact with any cold metal when you're winter camping- that includes tent poles, pots, etc

      Holds fuel..

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I haven't had any issues with any that I have owned.. I have every size and they all seem to be great.

      It would be kinda hard to screw something up that is so basic. The safety style caps are fine just like the regular non safety style.

      Bombproof!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These things do their job and then some! I have taken them everywhere, and they have held up through everything. A friend of mine had one in his trunk when he got rear-ended, and although it got smashed in, it still pressurized and worked the next time! These work with most stove fittings. As a plus, you can slap a goat on these too!



      Here is a volume/weight comparison with the Primus bottles.



      MSR:

      11 fl. oz/.33L, 2.8oz/79g weight

      22 fl. oz/.65L, 4.9oz/139g weight

      33 fl. oz/.98L, 7.3oz/207g weight



      Primus:

      0.6L/20.3 fl.oz 5.0oz/144g weight

      1.0L/33.8 fl.oz 7.51oz/213g weight

      1.5L/50.7 fl.oz 9.84oz/279g weight

      Does what it needs to

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These bottles do what they need to do so there really isn't much that needs to be said about them. They hold fuel and feed it to the stove. If you have an MSR liquid fuel stove you need one anyway.

      the golden standard

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Never had an issue with these bottles. The three sizes make fuel reserving and use easy: 22 or 32 as backup, with an 11 for most cooking and trips. The 32 fits well in oversized bike bottle cages for bike touring too.

      Child cap

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have extensive use of these bottles with both the traditional cap and child cap with both Whisperlites and Dragonflies, I'm quite disappointed in the child safety caps, they are a pain to use and the original caps are much more reliable, the original cap makes it 5 stars, the child cap is barely a singe star.

      don't be afraid to drop

        I use this with the whisperlite stove for backpacking trips and it works great. for a ten day trip we usually take about two 21 oz. bottles and have plenty white gas left over. It's refillable and sturdy.

        Anybody knows where to get the rubbery...

        Anybody knows where to get the rubbery o-rings for the traditional caps? I've had mine so long, it's all cracked and a bit leaky!

        ACE Hardware has the best selection of small hardware and o-ring of all the national chains. My small local store carries the size. If you want to buy more than a few, you'll save some bucks and can get some super high quality/long lasting o-rings through McMaster-Carr.

        Don't really use stoves that much, could I use this as a water bottle? You know, human fuel?

        Best Answer

        No, no, no, no, NEVER, EVER mix your (toxic) fuel containers with your drinkable water containers! Even if you are using a brand-new bottle, it's best to keep Fuel bottles as fuel bottles, water bottles as water bottles and pee bottles as pee bottles (just so someone you are camping with doesn't accidentally take a swig of something they didn't intend to)!

        No! As another person posted earlier, never mix your water bottles & fuel bottles. You never want to be confused as to which is which. The bottle even with no fuel has a distinct smell that you would not want to drink from.

        Does anyone have the diameter and overall height of the 20 and 30 oz bottles? I recently got the Dakine builders pack(2012) and want to store 2 bottles in the side pockets. Does anyone know if the 30's will fit? Thanks.

        I can't open the child proof cap, I push down and turn counterclockwise, but it won't open, even if I push down with it on the ground, and use a pliers handle to turn. It turns a little ways, but won't release from the bottle.

        Best Answer

        Mary, I have had this problem before especially when it is cold out. I seriously had to bang the crap out of this thing on a picnic table to loosen the lid and after some serious down pressure and twisting till my fingers hurt it popped off. Take a look by angling the the bottle verticly. Make sure the threads are aligned and not cross threated. If they are trying hitting the lid with a hammer. Keep trying!

        Hand it to the kids, they always find a way to override that sort of stuff. Sounds like you did everything you were supposed to. Try this though- if you're at home, try to find something longer than the pliers handle like a long screwdriver or a dowel or something similar that you can slip through the cap's eye and bear down on with the palms of both hands. Something that won't break or bend. Set it on the ground between your feet and then push down evenly and try to turn it. In camp, use something like a good, solid x-peg stake, trekking pole tip, or a strong stick. That should do it, even if the threads are impossibly crossed. If not,except for cutting it off, I'm out of ideas. When you finally get it off, throw it away and use the stock cap. Tell the kids that if they even touch the bottle, they'll die instantly, or if they don't know how to read yet, show them the writing on the bottle and pretend to translate some arbitrary part of it into an ominous and terrifying warning. You would be surprised at just how effectively "childproof" both these techniques can be...my kids still have phobias about white gas and wild mushrooms.

        im going on an 8 day backpacking trip in killarney provincial park and i have the msr whisperlite stove and i have know clue how much fuel to bring. I plan on buying the 20oz bottle, and there will be 4 people coming on the trip and we will be cooking with the stove at least 2 meals a day. how much fuel bottle should i bring??

        Best Answer

        Lot's of variables in that one, but I would take at least 2/20oz bottles for that amount of people and time. Even an extra 11oz for contingency's sake and to use for the actual cooking wouldn't be a bad thing (using the other 2 for just storage and transfer). I would probably figure on using my stove for a minimum of about 20 minutes per day x 8 = at least 160 minutes. The WhisperLite, optimally, will give you 110 minutes per 20oz. If you go for 30 minutes per day, your fuel needs theoretically go to 240 minutes and more than just that 40oz you're carrying. Fine line. Worst case scenario- you might come home with some fuel left over. Ideally- you won't risk running out on day 6 or 7, and, you can use a larger pot so that everyone can eat at the same time (more water means longer boil times). Here's a few things to consider besides just how much fuel you'll need- The 30oz bottles are sort of a pain to cook with, an extra bottle for backup/unforeseen spills or whatever is a good thing to have if eating depends on it, dividing up the weight more evenly is always appreciated, etc...

        If it's a factor, don't forget that airlines will not allow you to carry full fuel bottles, ever, and will only let you carry used ones if you cleaned out all traces of fuel, leave the cap off, and declare it.

        I'd probably bring 3 20 oz bottles between the three of you just to be on the safe side -- I know that I had planned on using my stove for just cooking on a few camping trips, but it ended up being used to boil water for makeshift shower wipes, making drinking water, and using some of the fuel to light a fire (great way to create a fireball and singe your eyebrows!). The weight shouldn't be that big of an issue if you're careful about packing the rest of your stuff and distribute your gear thoughtfully.

        Does anyone know exactly how tall these...

        Does anyone know exactly how tall these are, specifically the smallest one, but if know how tall the other ones are that would help too

        I'll go ahead and give you height and diameter-

        11oz (small) 7.4"x 2.5"
        The volumes for the next two are stated in the specs incorrectly but are-
        20oz- 9.4"x 2.85"
        30oz- 11.3"x 3.25"

        Measure the depth of your pump from other stove manufacturers with the 11oz bottle, some are too long.

        Hi, I am well familiar with gas stoves,...

        Hi,
        I am well familiar with gas stoves, but im moving to my first liquid fuel stove and i have a question about these bottles and fuel storage.

        When i am not on the trail/hiking, is it best to keep my fuel (white gas/shellite) in the MSR bottle, or in the original plastic jug it comes in.
        I have heard that (when top is off) this fuel evaporates quickly.

        Whats some tips on storage for this stuff?
        Will 5L last 6months in storage after i've used 1L already?

        Best Answer

        I have to admit in many years of usage, I've never had white gas go bad even after eight years of storage but I've never purchased white gas in a plastic jug. Mine has always come in a metal gallon can & it works just fine, in fact I haven't noticed any difference between it & new fuel. It will store equally well in either container however the gas will evaporate with a loosely fitting cap so make sure it is tight!

        Agree with the others that it all depends on storage. Was cleaning out my parent's basement about 5 years ago and found my dad's old camping gear -- old 2 burner Coleman stove and a case of white gas cans... even had the original dated (1976!!) receipt in the box. Thought I'd give it a shot, and sure enough both the stove and fuel worked perfectly. Still use the stove for car camping and am about half way through that original case :) As long as it's sealed in a cool/dry environment, the stuff can literally last a lifetime.

        does this come with the fuel/ if not where...

        does this come with the fuel/ if not where does one get it?

        No, it's just the bottle. Put just about any type of fuel (white gas, kerosene,unleaded, diesel..etc) paired with a multi-fuel stove and you're good to go. You can find these fuels almost anywhere (target, hardware stores, gas stations). Be sure to know if your stove requires a specific type of fuel.

        don t screw top tight in the serria nevadas and climb to altidude in super hot temps without letting pressure out once and a while or the container will fail at its weakest point, the cap,
        or valve and blow your thinker off,or what ever else.
