    Folks, We carry the largest made bottles into the field for work which is the 30 OZ MSR fuel bottles. These bottles rock for toughness and are pressure vessels so they don't leak. Exception is if the caps O ring fail :-(. We immediately replace the safety caps they come with, with normal ones. The only down side is 30 OZ isn't all that much fuel if you are boon-docking for days and/or heating water for showers. Boon-docking is what we do 90% the time. As others have stated, HDPE plastic is not bothering by gasoline fuels.

    Look for a pizza stone that will fit on the shelf. It will help with heat distribution eliminating hot spots and the need to keep turning your food. I adapted adjustable feet on mine to help with leveling. Smart thinking on the scaffold legs I went crazy trying to find something to put it on that was the right height.
    Edit: progress report on cap gasket for your Coleman stove? Oh yeah the gasket needs to be fuel resistant so I don’t think Home Depot will have it.

    I have several different stoves ,the one I like the best and use the most is a early 60s model two burner coleman that was my dads ,I also have 2 two mantle and a one mantle lantern and a coleman tent heater that were his .Their simple and just work .I have a new 3 burner coleman propane stove works ok but is very hard to control the heat,and a two burner campchef weekender propane stove well built works good but is big and heavy.

    We used a ancient stove for a long, long time but now a have a new one. The father-in-law keeps buying camp equipment then gives it us, after he decides that he'll not use it. Nonetheless, they both work fine and we'll keep using the new one since its slightly smaller in size.

    Camp food is best!
