Great product - optimal size.
Supported by great price and great service.
The ultimate way to use and store fuel.
Great fuel bottle, unlikely to leak and makes refilling the Trangia so easy. Tip: use a bright light to see the remaining fuel level
Used for meths and kero - leakproof, light and saves a lot of spillage without needing a funnel.
Lightweight and well sealed. It's handy to be able to adjust the amount being poured out.
Fantastic. Peace Of Mind knowing they will not leak. Having the adjustable pourer
on the bottle makes using them so easy. Great Product. I use them to carry shellite for our camping stoves.
Light to carry with easy filling capabilities and a safe no leak pouring system.
Made of durable plastic with a spill proof lid.
I purchased the litre bottle and well worth the money.
Although a little expensive these bottles are well worth it for the controlled way you can fuel the Trangia burner. Excellent seal means there are no leaks.
A bit expensive but worth every cent. The nozzle is adjustable so you can have a smaller amount of fuel flow from the little black spout... then readjust nozzle and its sealed again. I'd recommend this to any Trangia owner.
I want to order a coleman sportster stove and need a safe storage option for fuel thanks
I would stick to metho with these bottles Tony. the MSR bottles are suitable for Shellite, check them out here.
Boil water & fry breakfast ? Or able to do breakfast and dinner before needing to refill?
Mi Michelle, there isn't an exact answer here unfortunately, it's very dependant on what your cooking and the environment you are cooking in, there is a lot of trial and error when you get started, but I can give you some pointers to get going. The burner holds roughly 90ml, but it's probably more important to work out how much fuel you need for each meal and dispensing the fuel as you need it, it is best practice to transport fuel in the bottle rather than the burner. You can assume roughly 50ml of metho will boil 1 litre of water, and this will take approximately 10 minutes. Working backwards you can assume that 50ml of fuel gives you 10 minutes of cooking time. I would aim for 150 200ml of fuel per day as a minimum plus extra as a buffer for starters, record your usage and adjust accordingly on your next trip. So to answer your question, a 500ml bottle could cover you anywhere from 3 - 5 days depending on what you are cooking. It can be helpful to read up on other hikers experiences, the Bushwalk Australia forum is a great place for information, and do a few trial cooks at home to measure how much fuel is used to cook the meals you plan on taking. I hope this helps.
Do you sell the 300ml bottle as well, or just the 500ml and 1L?
I've just checked for you, and we don't actually sell the 300ml Trangia Fuel Bottle. If you're after something of a similar size, we do have the MSR Fuel Bottle in the 325ml size - but it doesn't have the same valve as the Trangia.
