    It does look like just the thing for the job, doesn't it?

    And the price is just fine, too.

    Not cert to use with gas...says "water bottle", but hey, it's gotta be better than a plastic one.

    Shipping charge

    Looks like they use USPS flat rate boxes?

    Primus Aluminium Water Bottles - Clearance [remove]

    * Select : 1000ml Add $1 (+1)

    $6.95 $41.70

    Subtotal: $41.70
    Shipping: $10.67*
    Tax: $0.00
    Total: $52.37

    $10.67 to ship 6 to Phoenix is good. Maybe they have to put it on a boat to get to Lake Havasu? )

    I am world's worse speller, but I can spell aluminum and it seems they can't?

    Rubber Seal??

    An other consideration is what kind of rubber seal do they use?

    I don't know how to tell untill the rubber gets slick and sitcky if it is black. We put color in our rubber products so we know what kind of rubber it is.

    Most common sealer for water is EDPM rubber which is a hydrocarbon and not oil resistant. Buna-N (Nitrile) is oil resistant and we sell it into JP-4 fueling service. That is about what we have in our applications. gas or gas/oil. JP-4 of course is kerosene jet fuel.
