MSR Fuel Bottle.
The MSR Fuel Bottle is the ideal solution when you need extra fuel on your camping or hiking trips. It is made from a single impact-extruded aluminum piece, that prevents leakage and cracks. This bottle also has a bolstered shoulder and base, that is resistant to bulging when it is pressurized. It features a child resistant packaging (CRP) cap and is safe to take on family excursions. An air-tight seal prevents air from contaminating the fuel, keeping it ready when you need it. It quickly connects to the pump of the MSR Stove, for all your outdoor cooking requirements.

Key Features.


  • Made from single-piece, impact-extruded aluminum to prevent leaks and cracks


  • Designed to work with the threaded pumps on your existing MSR stoves
  • Allows longer-term fuel storage by preventing air from entering and degrading fuel
  • MSR Fuel Pump can be stored inside a depressurized bottle for easy transporting
  • Bolstered shoulder and base to resist bulging when pressurized.

MSR made its Fuel Bottle from a single piece of aluminum and added an air-tight seal so there's less leaking and cracking. The Fuel Bottle works with the threaded pumps on your MSR stove. Holes in the shaft of the bottle cap prevent spills and provide more controlled pouring capabilities. You can store and transport your MSR fuel pump in the Fuel Bottle once the bottle is depressurized.

Backcountry Edge

The MSR Fuel Bottle is designed to work in tandem with all MSR liquid-fuel stoves (sold separately). Made from a single piece of impact-extruded aluminum to prevent leaks and cracks, the Fuel Bottle is bolstered at the shoulder and base to resist bulging when pressurized.

These fuel bottles are designed specifically to accept the threads on MSR fuel pumps and to easily handle the pressurization you need to efficiently operate MSR liquid fuel stoves.

MSR Fuel Bottle Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

These things have been around forever.. for a reason. Bomber construction and pretty much your only option for liquid fueled MSR stoves. I have one of each size which gives a lot of versatility. Being in Utah, I tend to be backpacking over 10,000' pretty frequently - I've found that the small bottle lasts 2 nights x 2 people and the medium lasts 3+ nights x 4 people. This is for cooking home-dehydrated meals - I'm sure you'd get more mileage if only boiling water. The large size is great for larger groups/ longer trips to carry fuel. I don't tend to run a stove off the large bottle if I can avoid it - it takes a lot more pumping to keep the bottle pressurized if it's half empty with a huge airspace inside the bottle, especially at higher elevations.

These fuel bottles are the only ones that don't leak when the temps get high in the desert. I prefer the 11 oz for my light and fast solo trips, or for my overnight alpine climbs. Plenty of fuel to last you for days and it doesn't end up weighing any more than the two canisters you'd have to bring. I even still have bottles from the 80's that have zero problems. I always carry a small cap (the non-childproof one) in my bag in case my pump starts leaking. Almost zero extra weight and no extra bulk. Love these things.

These things do their job and then some! I have taken them everywhere, and they have held up through everything. A friend of mine had one in his trunk when he got rear-ended, and although it got smashed in, it still pressurized and worked the next time! These work with most stove fittings. As a plus, you can slap a goat on these too!

I also have the dragonfly stove and these bottles are great. I am not the kindest to my equipment and have never had a problem with these bottles at all. As a father of 3 and 6 year old little boys the child proof cap is welcomed as they go with me all the time. I don't use a bear container to keep the bears out of stuff, I use it to keep "Sticky"(my 3 year old) out of stuff. Ken

Great product

I wanted a 20oz, but the store only had the 11oz in stock at the time. It has proved to be just enough for a short weekend trip. I cooked two meals, and allowed the rest of my group to try out my stove as well and did not even use half of the bottle. I still plan to get a second larger one. No leaks, and solid seal on the lid.

msr bottle

Needed a larger fuel bottle for a whisperlite stove.
it was just right. Very good quality, reasonably priced and in stock on the shelf at my local store. It is a bigger bottle and heavier when full but we were going on a week long wilderness trip and needed adequate fuel supply. it worked well with the stove. no complaints.

Durable, different enough from a water bottle that no one drinks out of it, No leaking problems. Childproof cap is nice. Even if you don't have children, it prevents the cap from loosening when crammed in your pack on a rough trail. MSR knows what they are doing!

Alex at on 06/19/2013

I haven't had any issues with any that I have owned.. I have every size and they all seem to be great.
It would be kinda hard to screw something up that is so basic. The safety style caps are fine just like the regular non safety style.

greg at on 12/28/2013

Never had an issue with these bottles. The three sizes make fuel reserving and use easy: 22 or 32 as backup, with an 11 for most cooking and trips. The 32 fits well in oversized bike bottle cages for bike touring too.

Ben C at on 09/27/2013

These bottles do what they need to do so there really isn't much that needs to be said about them. They hold fuel and feed it to the stove. If you have an MSR liquid fuel stove you need one anyway.

Negative Reviews:

I have extensive use of these bottles with both the traditional cap and child cap with both Whisperlites and Dragonflies, I'm quite disappointed in the child safety caps, they are a pain to use and the original caps are much more reliable, the original cap makes it 5 stars, the child cap is barely a singe star.
