Could be 9 oz fuel bottles

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I picked up some round water testing poly bottles at the township office. These are 2.250" Dia. by 5.200" long,and hold 9 fluid oz.They would make ideal fuel cells. Problem is they have a stopper ID.of just under .875"
Anybody got ideas on how to stopper them? : : I have run out of ideas on this one.

I have a 1 liter round bottle that I have been using for years. The bottle is a Shampoo bottle that I got from my daughter who is a hairstylist. The top is fairly big and I mounted two fittings with o'ring gaskets. There is also an o'ring around the top for ceiling. The cardboard caps were out to quick. I also hook a piece of Prather pink fuel line between the fittings for ceiling. When I want fuel I unhook the pickup line then replace when finished. The bottle has 2 filters along with the pickup at the bottom. I hate when I see a bottle left open. One you get the junk from blowing around and also the alcohol absorbs the moisture like a sponge.
Go to your favorite hairdresser and talk nice and you can get any size you want plus better construction.
Hope this helps you out.
