Hi all.
I usually carry a little spare fuel with me, generally for my Coleman 533 cooker; also handy though if you run out of fuel only to turn to reserve and find you are already on reserve; not that it has ever happened to me you understand. :color: Storing it is not that easy though... so today I did something about it and welded a few pieces of scrap flat bar together and squeezed it in between my standard Givi Transalp racks and hey prestow! The bottle came from get geared http://www.getgeared.co.uk/Travel_Petrol_Can?sc=23&category=-123 and was about £9ish...These and more photos on Potski photos on Flickr for those that are interested. http://www.flickr.com/photos/potski-photos/3401666761/in/set-72157615982129592/

Be good, Ride Safe!

Hi digitalcaptive
Yeah it's a fair cop... can't help it as I used to build Land Rover campers many moons ago, so I'm used to making things fit... guess it still shows.;)

Cheers

I use a similar idea made from stuff i had lying around.

Fuel bottle: 1 litre or 0.7 litre Sigg bottle (or similar MSR or Optimus kind)

Holder: Bottle cage designed for mounting on a bicycle (originally intended for water bottles)

Mounting location: "round tube" style pannier racks (mine are 2nd hand Givis (thanks Phil))

Mounting method: 2 hose clips.

I use one on each side. Both for petrol if I'm using my "bivi bomb" petrol stove, or one petrol and one meths if using a Trangia/cola-can stove.

They can also be used for carrying rolled up waterproof overtrousers (the thin nylon kind) or even water bottles!
