White Gas Containers

Hauling extra camp stove gas on remote trips means leaving the original one gallon gas can at home in the garage.  Lightweight aluminum containers with reliable O-ring stoppers are widely available, come in a variety of sizes, and are not all that expensive.  Check your sporting goods store.


However, here is what I use.  Living in Minnesota, we all know about dumping plenty of fuel system antifreeze into our gas tanks throughout the winter.  The 10 oz. plastic containers the stuff comes in are reusable for this task.  I like the red “px” isopropyl bottles.  Their flat shape tucks away in your pack just about anywhere, the small cap seals better than others, and the long, thin spout is great for pouring into your stove or lantern without a funnel.
