fuel bottle for an alcohol stove

What do people use? I'd hate to confuse a white gas canister with an alcohol canister.

Alcohol or Methanol is less corrosive than white gas. Just put it in a well labelled plastic bottle. The nice thing about alcohol is that even if you spill it in your pack, you can just open it up and it will all evaporate out without ruining everything.

Platypus makes 12 and 16 oz little bottles that are light and indistructable. just replace the "squirt" top with a standard soda bottle top.


That's what I use (I have one for my Jameson's too!).
