Rated 4 out of 5 by Middleweight MRS Fuel Bottle is for emergencies
This is actually my second MSR fuel bottle. I fill and carry this with me for long rides on my Piaggio MP3. If the trip is longer than 50 miles one way, I carry it with me. If an emergency happens and I run out of fuel, this should be enough to get me to a gas station. My only issue with this product is that over time, my first bottle became extremely difficult to open, but I had it 5yrs before this happened. This is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hikerbikersailorsurf CAP NOT as pictured
STOP THE WORLD! The CAP IS BAD>
Fuel Bottle is fine, but it's the CAP that is a concern. First, the photo shows the old style normal cap, the preferred cap. The bottle is sent with the new Child Proof CAP, not good. Very difficult to remove if the fuel bottle becomes pressurized, (altitude, heats up in the sun, etc.) The required method of push down and twist is difficult, and I have serious concerns with the safety feature leading to stripped out teeth inside the cap and not being able to open/close the bottle. Give us some credit to keep our fuel safe from drinking. Do you really think the bureaucrats who came up with this "improvement" spend any time "out there". Give us the normal cap with this, Or, offer the replacement cap as an additional item in the catalog.
Love MSR stoves and LL Bean.
Just thought you would want to know.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WhiteRiver Awful cap
Bought two, and one of the safety caps will not open after fewer than a half dozen uses. I simply cannot open the cap. Do not buy this product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by syncro87 Changed cap style
My old MSR fuel bottle had the cap in the picture...i.e just a simple screw on cap with no "safety" feature. The new bottles have a "child safe" cap similar to OTC meds, and it is not as pictured. It stinks. It's hard to engage and you get the vibe that one day the mechanism in the cap will either strip out or not engage enough to loosen a cap that has been tightly installed. I'm sure MSR went to the new style due to some liability concern, but as usual, the "improved" part is not as good as the old one, which worked perfectly. Boo! Make sure your product pictures match the merchandise, please.

Its a fuel bottle, plain and simple. Fits MSR luqid stoves, among others. It resembles an aluminum water bottle, and that's why I like the red color. If dehydration and exaustion take thier toll on a fellow backpacker, this one is hard to mistake for drinking water...

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrazilGuy It does it's job
Not a whole to say other than this fuel container does what it's supposed to do. It seems nicely made and hasn't leaked yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VintageRovers Solid!
Some of my MSR fuel bottles that I still use are first generation, some are new-ish. The fact is that these bottles are tough yet are lightweight. I have one bottle that has a pretty nifty dent in it from accidentally getting too close to the crampons in my backpack and years later the bottle is still a tried and true companion in the backcountry. Most importantly I have never had any of my MSR bottles leak! Wouldn't use anything else.
