Funny, I use a Square Fiji bottle for my fuel and regular soda bottles for
water. Maybe we should avoid hiking together (LOL).
I originally tried to write FUEL in big letters on the bottle but the
alcohol has a way of erasing the writing after a few uses. I guess I'm
just careful and people don't usually share bottles. I've heard of someone
accidentally taking a drink from a soda bottle that contained alcohol fuel
on the AT. They didn't swallow enough (if any) to do harm - the taste will
wake you up pretty quick. You'd be amazed how quick someone can spit.
