Hello Chockstoners,

have a favour to ask to anyone in melbourne or sydney

we are departing soon for a trip to the NT to do the larapinta trail and need to borrow a couple of 975ml msr fuel bottles, these will be returned to their owners in as lent condition or replaced if for any reason they are trashed (cant see this hapening but it hopefully gives a bit of piece of mind)
just need to borrow them to save buying yet more gear, already have one but have never needed more as its not every day you walk 200+ km

so can anyone help??

cheers

Can't help with the big ones but if you need a couple of 600 ml ones ( especially the old silver one with the 'Danger Flammable Liquid' sticker that the check in staff love) let me know. I also have a litre aluminium Primus bottle that doesn't fit but not hard to decant.

i don't understand why you need more than one. Are you unable to carry a plastic container of fuel as bought from a standard store and refill the msr bottle you do have once it's empty?
I'm not sure what i'm missing..
(plastic bottles are also lighter...)

How very true. Actually it is impossible.

And Citationx is right with his advice.

Kevin, if there was a 'post of the day' poll, you'd get my vote. But the 24-odd minutes it took you to reply detracts a bit, making me think that fact wasn't just part of your general knowledge. But an excellent riposte regardless - short and to-the-point.

Back on topic - assuming you have a good reason why you can't store the fuel in something else then decant as required, I've got an MSR fuel bottle you can borrow if you can pick it up during business hours from the Melbourne CBD.
