* They've got this cool new bottle top that won't back off unless you treat it like a safety pill bottle top. (1. Push down 2. Turn...) That's actually nice, as it tends to keep the kids out of it, but it also makes it slightly less prone to accidentally working loose in the pack
* They've modified - slightly - the pour openings in the bottle cap. They used to both be round, but now one of them is oblong, making for a wider stream when pouring. Nice.

After using it, you have to relieve the pressure by slowly loosening the pump insert. If you open too quickly you may get some gas sputtering out around the lid as you remove the pump. But a little common sense and caution results in no real problem. There was a bit of fuel in the line to the stove. I would have to let it dribble out before stowing the stove, and used a paper towel to dry off the connector. No biggie. And if it is for the evening meal, the spot of gas on the paper towel is good for fire starter to help get the wood fire going.
While using it I kept careful track of how much fuel was needed each time, and ended up buying a 20 oz bottle also. To cook noodles and soup in the pot that comes with mess kits similar to the ...Read more ›

Great bottle plan to put gasoline to use with the motorcycle. It is larger than I expected but that just means it can hold more gas. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Mark
