For many years now MSR has been making stoves that backpackers, climbers, hikers and adventure travelers rely on, and right alongside that trusty stove is the MSR Fuel Bottle. This refillable fuel bottle comes in 3 sizes: 11 oz, 20 oz and 30 oz. It holds liquid fuel and is compatible with the WhisperLite, the SimmerLite, the DragonFly and any other MSR liquid-fuel stove. It's made from a single piece of impact-extruded aluminum for lightweight strength with a bolstered shoulder and base to resist deforming when pressurized. An air-tight seal won't leak and will keep oxygen from degrading fuel when in storage. Threaded to fit MSR fuel pumps, this bottle will store the fuel pump when it's empty to aid in easy air transport. Get gourmet, explore outside the boxed world of dehydrated food in camp with your MSR stove and MSR stove accessories.


  • Material: single-piece, impact-extruded aluminum to prevent leaks and cracks
  • Designed specifically to accept the threads on MSR fuel pumps
  • Air-tight seal allows fuel to be stored longer by preventing air from entering and degrading fuel
  • Bolstered shoulder and base to resist bulging when pressurized
  • Holes in shaft of bottle cap allow measured flow, prevent spills
  • MSR Fuel Pump can be stored inside a depressurized bottle for easy transporting

Great product
January 04, 2004

Same as above, bought two 33oz bottles for motorcycle gas backup, great pricing and product..!!


Strong & Lightweight
January 27, 2008

These fuel bottles are strong, almost as light as titanium, & don't leak with a pump attached. They also hold a lot of pressure without bulging. When I use a liquid fuel stove, these bottles carry my fuel without worry. When used properly, the 22oz. size will provide enough fuel for seven days.

30OZ MSR bottle
May 25, 2011

Always loved these. Light, durable, easy to pour. 30oz is the stove-use volume. They actually hold more like 34 oz full if you are just using it for fuel transport. That is a whole another meal worth.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Exactly what I was looking for.
July 08, 2011

My only gripe is that while the lid appears to have some sort of venting I still get a little bit of pressure build up causing a tiny splash of fuel when I open the bottle even though I am only filling to the fill line.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Hardcore Quality
October 13, 2010

When you place a bottle of liquid fuel in you pack you got to feel a little bit uneasy. What if leaks on all your expensive gear ? That's that beauty of the MSR fuel canister. The seal is tight in any type of temperation I could throw at it. Like down to 9 degrees F up to 95 degrees F. The pressure and fit of the closure relative to the presssure to make a liquid tight seal is remarkable. This is a hard core quality product. Much like all the other products coming out of MSR.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Cons: none

Standard purchase, in the quiver.
July 23, 2012

If you have a white gas burning stove a fuel bottle of this size is a no brainer. I recently did 5 days in the Mount Whitney area and used my Whisper Light Stove with this size fuel bottle to sustain our cooking needs for boiling water for all dinners and tea in the mornings.

Pros: Lasts forever

Solid as rock
April 30, 2005

Wonderful fuel bottle. Solid like rock.


good gear!

Fill it with gas, put the pump in and let'er rip. It works. It doesn't leak. Rinses out easily and light weight.

Fuel bottle for gas
November 18, 2003

Bought fuel bottle to use as a spare gas reserve for a motorcycle. Works great and provides just enough fuel for emergency use. Fits in saddle bags dont leak or smell and dont take up much room. Plan on buying more for other bikes.


UL fuel bottle
July 05, 2009

It's a UL fuel bottle. Bottle and pump fit seamlessly, 33 oz bottle fits for long trips, 22 oz fits for 2-5 days, and the 11oz fits for 1-2 days trip.

The 22oz is great for motorcycles
July 04, 2006

I have the 22oz bottle for my motorcycle. I have had it over 2 years and it is still in great shape. I highly recommend this probduct.

Worry Free Fuel Transport

Super strong, leak-proof fuel bottles & lightweight to boot! Stove fuel pump can be attached without concern of leaking. Be sure to depressurize bottle before packing.

A must have in the winter
June 25, 2012

This with a whisperlite and your good to go in the winter... The propane stoves just don't cut it below 20 deg. Bottle is very durable. I use this if I know I'm staying the njight and it's smaller brother for a day hike as an emergancy stove. Also use as a reserve bottle on my adventure motercycle.

It holds fuel and doesn't leak even when backed in a bag upside down and bounced for hours. Worked much better than I though they would. No leaks, easy to handle and a great product.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Just what I needed
July 02, 2005
