Optimus 0.6l bottle

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

I ordered the Medium sized 0.6l (20oz) bottle to go with my optimus nova stove. Works as it should, however I was sent the wrong size. Some sort of mixup with the inventory at the warehouse got me the small sized 0.4l (15oz) bottle. Contacted customer service and they were out of stock of anything larger, yet the site still advertises a 0.6l in stock.

Child proof top is easy to use and doesnt leak.

Actually the plot thickens further! I ordered 4 of these and got two different child safe tops. One of them is like the one Travis posted. Wider than the expedition cap. The other one looks just like the one in the original photo, but is also child safe. Both designs seem to work fine. The narrower cap has the holes in the threads to pour fuel. The wider one does not.

This bottle is shown with an 'expedition' cap. Does it come with the cap pictured or does it come with a 'child safe' cap?

Will these bottles work with MSR stove...

Will these bottles work with MSR stove pumps?

Responded on

A lot of people have made the mating work but the Optimus bottle has a slightly wider rim and the O-ring on the MSR pump cant always get a perfect seal and the bottle may leak.

I suggest getting an MSR bottle so as not to have to worry about it.

I was wondering if there are any of this type of fuel bottle with a pressure release, besides twisting off the cap? Same as Mike, I am looking to carry around a liter of spare gasoline .

yes. there's no reason you cannot carry and liquid fuel, as this is actually meant to carry pressurized liquid fuel.
