I've been using an Aluminum 11oz. MSR bottle to store fuel for my Trangia stove for the past several months.

Yesterday I received word from Andy at CampSaver warning me that that was a bad combination and the alcohol could actually corrode the Aluminum bottle from the inside resulting in a)a loss of fuel b)a mess or c)a potentially devastating situation.

So, no aluminum bottles for your fuel if you're running a Trangia/soda can burner.

Check this link for more information on alcohol stoves.

Thanks for reading,
