    Fuel bottles?

    I found these stainless bottles on Amazon.ca and find them very well made at a bargain price....... They are 1 litre or 34 oz and fit the Quick Fists grips with room to spare. I have not tried them yet but they feel rock solid for $10.95 CDN!
    The only weak spot will be the rubber o-ring that makes the seal in the bottle cap..... ( a big shout out to TW-Brian for the custom grips)

    Gas "will" mess up those o-rings.

    But they can be replaced with gasoline resistant replacement o-rings.
    Or just haul beverages in the Quick Fists, they might add a whole new meaning to “Here, hold my beer and watch this”.

    MSR bottles with fuel resistant o-rings are expensive, but replacing o-rings with Buna N or = should make the water bottles workable.

    Here is another possibility:

    Check out truFuel at Home Depot or Lowes. 92 octane (not needed, but no harm) and no ethanol.

    Hey putt-putt,

    When I first used these Brunton fuel bottles, the crummy ethanol blended fuel that we have here in California literally turned the entire caps into mush. I complained to Brunton and they sent me some new ethanol resistant caps that have been working fine ever since. You may be able to get ethanol/gas resistant O-rings, but if the plastic caps aren't resistant then you are out of luck.

    Only one way to know for sure. Fill one with the gas that you plan to use, lay it its side (outside somewhere) for a week or two and see what happens.

    Thanks guys, lots of great suggestions. I will use these for water/beverages and buys proper ones for the very rare time that I think I may require additional fuel.......
    I think they will look.....

    Need that fuel to start a warming fire. It just plain looks cold up there in your picture. I wish I would've been into off-road motorcycles when I lived in Colorado. Couldn't afford any type of motorcycle at the time let alone off-road/dual-sport.

    Burrrr!


    I once had a Harry Houdini gas can strapped to my rear rack. Despite my best efforts to secure the can, it unshackled itself and jumped right off the TW, on to the trail and tried to run away. Unfortunately, it cracked and bled out (gas) on the trail. Me no trusty the normal plastic gas cans again. Not trail riding anyway. Maybe ok on nicer roads and 2 tracks.
