Another potential danger is if someone thinks your fuel bottle  
contains water and tries to use it to put out a campfire or stove  

I think it just makes sense to very clearly mark any bottle that  
contains fuel--especially when you are storing it in a bottle that is  
typically used to contain something drinkable.

Nalgene used to sell a bright red plastic fuel container, but it seems  
to be discontinued.
