    Wouldn't an old coffee thermos (32 ounce) or an old aluminum water bottle (20 ounce) work to carry extra gas in, or would the sloshing create too much pressure? I have one of each and was thinking about painting them red and putting GAS in big letters on them so no one would try to take a sip and strap them on the back

    Thermos , if it is glass.might break but the aluminum water bottle would work just fine. Try to mount it where it will be shaded from the sun as gasoline can expand like mad

    The thermos is double walled stainless. Sorry I should have specified.

    If you could rig some sort of a vent in the cap that would not allow fuel to spill out it may work. I would keep an eye on the cap and seal as most caps are plastic and may not stand up gasoline.

    MSR are about $20 shipped. Dollar tree has aluminum water bottles, well, for $1. Let us know how it works out- I might have to go spend $1

    Yeah, the MSR bottles are pretty popular. Their stoves ain't bad, either. The issue I've heard about with regular metal drinking containers is venting, and the rubber seal breaking down.



    For like two days, I used a magnetic parts tray as a gas cap and the fumes ate up the rubber base that covered the magnet in that amount of time.

    I assume the only problem with a regular aluminum water bottle is the cap right? Would a cork work or would the pressure just blow it out? Any other ideas?
