Questions & Answers

When I ordered 2 of these from somewhere else, the bottles were Can you tell me if that will be the case here?

Both of them were full of air after I bought them. Because one seemed to have more than the other, one seems to have been filled at two different locations and altitudes, but I did not weigh them.

Is this bottle wide enough for a gas pump to fit in its mouth?

It should be able to fit into an Optimus Nova stove, if that is the pump. I am unable to tell you if the stove

A GOOD PIECE OF Having bought my first Sigg fuel bottle in the early 1980s, I also bought my first Svea stove with it
5/5

Since then, I've literally traveled the world with both. I read the reviews of the childproof caps, I hesitated but I went ahead and ordered anyway, as I wanted the green Optimus bottle with the butch warning labels all over it because I was a gear freak like that. My husband and I are putting together a kit for a planned trip on the Trans America Trail as soon as the Coof restrictions lift, and I was looking for some new bottles to store emergency gas, stove fuel, and oil to keep my motorcycle running. Don't be afraid of the child proof cap, it will work with old bottles and caps and is interchangeable. In comparison with the older caps that had to be watched carefully while packing, the new cap is easier to open and the best part is, if it's tucked in a pack or pannier bag and gets knocked hard, the cap will remain in place in an emergency. After over 50 years of military service, Outward Bound instructing, and adventure travel, here are a few tips for the future. It is important not to over-tighten the gasket as this will squish the gasket prematurely. Using the childproof cap is easy - you just spin it down, then push down and down to lock, then snug it up a bit and you're done. It is also essential that you take a quiz Put a thin layer of silicone grease on the gasket so that it will not crack after it dries out due to the petroleum. You can use scuba seal grease or like I did, you can simply use snow seal to seal your boots. For obvious reasons, don't use petroleum jelly on the gasket as such a product will dry it It should also not be filled above the fill line if any gasoline or petrol is being used as the gases will need room to expand. I'm sure it's the same bottle as the one I have for 40 years. Make sure your gear is in good shape so that you can take care of it.

As a result of my error, I was punished
5/5

Using a strong word such as love is a strong statement, but I'm sure if I need this, I'll An explanation of the back story is needed. While I have been considering getting this for the fuel mod for my motorcycle for a while, I didn't expect to run out of gas, so I never pursued the purchase. My motorcycle fuel light went on as I was riding it along on a warm summer day here in the Pacific Northwest. After considering my destination and the remaining range of my vehicle, I decide which gas station I will stop at when I speed along I have no problem with that. Good to know. Murphy determines that the bike is empty once range=25 ==empty, so the bike stalls out at 75mph as it descends the center lane. My plan was to coast over to the shoulder, and since there was room, I turned the bike off for a few moments and started the engine. There are bike starts, there are As a result, I leap off the platform into the air Around a half-mile into the run (uphill + 90 degrees), I stop to cool off by taking my helmet I stop to unzip my suit after walking another half mile. I am again forced to push half a mile after a kind gentleman stops to ask if I need assistance and helps me get In the meantime, I walk another half mile while I wait for him to return. I grin and listen to him when he gets back and I'm dumping gas in, and he mentions this cool fuel storage mod for the bike. He will appreciate the gesture, so I will give him some money for saving my *ss, and I will ride to the nearest gas station to fill the bike and then return home to buy.

In what way does a "child safety cap" help? Children as young as five can figure out how the child safety cap works
3/5

Even a kid, if he has pliers or something that goes through the loop, will be able to open it sure enough. Thanks California for forcing all your ridiculous junk on the rest of America, that just adds more to the bill! In the end, I took this junk apart (a little bit of a pita) and found some jbweld, mixed it up, and stuck it back together so that it will remain fully locked forever. In case it is needed, I have also purchased a Trangia Fuel Bottle Safety Valve and a MSR Expedition Simple Screw Top Replacment Fuel Bottle Cap. My heart is racing as I consider what kind of ridiculous regulations will probably come out from.

Please take note of the following serious warning THIS BOTTLE SHOULD NOT BE USED IN ANY SITUATION that could cause serious harm
3/5

There is a problem with this cap, and it needs to As far as I am concerned, I am not the only person who has found this cap incredibly difficult In a survival situation, relying on this would simply make the situation more dire and more difficult for those in it.

I wish this warning would help to prevent somebody from making a mistake.

There's a fuel bottle in front of us
5/5

It does its job and does not The Optifuel bottle I use is larger than the stock bottle that came with the Polaris optifuel. That way I can carry more fuel without carrying two Besides being satisfied with the quality and price, I have not many other things to say.

Jesus, what a sweetheart! I took this bottle with me when I was on a nomad trip - The trip took me back and forth from OKC to Vegas
5/5

Outside of Las Vegas, it was filled with gas and the cap was tightened. It got stuffed in one of my Kreiga Dry bags and I just I introduced it to the open air three days later and there was no odor inside. There are no leaks or I think that's an excellent Performance is superb and the price is great.

The bottle is made of aluminum of good quality
5/5

In my opinion, this bottle would be very useful as a backup tank for mowing and snow blowing most of us have run out of gas while 3/4 of the job is done, and carrying a gasoline can around would be a pain, but this bottle would be perfect. The JFFCESTORE Minimalist Adjustable MOLLE Water Bottle Holder Kettle Pouch Belt Bottle Carrier for 17-inch is the perfect size for me, The water bottle is 42 ounces (black) and can hold the optimus bottle.

The overall quality of the bottle is excellent
5/5

If the lid is loose, make sure it is The overall quality of the bottle is excellent. If the lid is loose, make sure it is Due to this fuel system, MSR fuel bottles do not work with this system. lateral projection from the Optima stove is too long to properly fit into the MSR fuel bottle as a result of its 90° projection. Unlike the MSR fuel bottles, MSR fuel bottles are designed with a different neck.
