How Much Fuel Should I Bring?
MSR recommends 4 oz. (114ml) of liquid fuel per person per day for cooking or 8 oz. (237ml) of liquid fuel per person per day for melting snow and cooking. An extremely cold trip, like skiing in Antarctica, may require as much as 15 oz. (444ml) of liquid fuel per person per day.
How Long Will a Canister of MSR IsoPro Last?
In general, one 8 oz. canister of MSR IsoPro fuel will be sufficient to boil water for two people over four days in summer. Wind, low temperatures and longer cooking times will increase fuel consumption.
Carrying flammable fuel on passenger aircraft in carry-on or checked-in baggage is forbidden. Before transporting a MSR fuel bottle on an aircraft, safely empty all fuel from the bottle, wash inside with soapy water, rinse thoroughly, air dry, and store uncapped.
Fuel degrades when it contacts air. Store your fuel in an airtight container, such as an MSR fuel bottle.
Donington Outdoors supplies MSR and Colemans gas canisters in a range of sizes, with the standard screwtop fitting and self-sealing valve (so you can unscrew them while they still contain gas). We also sell MSR fuel bottles for safely storing liquid fuels. Please note: fuel is only available to buy in-store.
