Shrinking Fuel Bottle.

Postby zelph » Tue Aug 12, 2008 4:21 pm

This is the incredible shrinking fuel bottle. As your fuel is consumed, you can make your bottle smaller to make more room for your return home items.(garbage) Or use it for small amounts of fuel in it's shortened state, for short hikes. Something to look at.

It's made by Pop Tite. Patents pending worldwide.

Plastic is LDPE

It's dual purpose :D

now that is very cool!
what's the max capacity? where did you get it? not that it will help way up here, but if W-Mart or the one with a 'K' are carrying it i might have a chance of finding them.

i absolutely hate hollow things when packing stuff. wasted space. this would be a workable (at least to some extent) solution to empty bottles on the return half of the trip.

I got it when I was on vacation last year on the east coast. At a Civil War Museum. All the tourists get funneled into the Suvenier Store. It's a specialty item that is purchased with the organizations name imprinted on it. Check out your local tourist stop and rob store. ;)

I only bought one because of the ridiculous price of 4.79 or something like that.

Search the website that I posted up above. That's printed on the bottle.
