I buy fuel additive in bulk 2.5 gal and 5 gal containers due to cost savings. These Tip-n-measure containers are designed for storing chemicals. https://www.amleo.com/tip-n-measure-...pacity/p/TNMG/
They work great, are chemical resistant and are much more sophisticated than keeping it in a mason jar LOL.
I use a graduated cylinder for fuel dosage measurements. I keep the gloves, container and cylinder in a sealed plastic tote
I was looking for something like that originally before I went with what I got. Wish you would have posted this earlier
but I like my setup I have now.
I usually keep the bottle in the garage and fill it up when at home. However, when we go on trips, I take it with us. Well, if you let the bottle lay on its side, it will leak. And it's bad news for you (me) when said liquid leaks on to the wife's Muck boots and makes them all smelly....yea, still hearing about that one
Well, we're going on 2 big trips this summer and I need it with me and also need to not get in trouble with the wife. Needed a way to mount a bottle in the bed, and I wanted something that was leak proof(ish) and had measuring notches on it. Used the Google machine and found a water bottle on Amazon that held 40 oz. with 8 oz. increments on it, and found a bottle holder on Ebay that was flexible for different bottle sizes and could clamp on to something.
I have a Leer shell, so I mounted the holder to one of the shell clamps that clamp to the bed frame of the truck. Added one of my wifes elastic pony tail holders to keep the bottle in the holder and it worked great and never lost the bottle when it was under half full. But, once I filled it up to 40 oz. it was too much for the hair tie. Got loose and rolled around the bed. Thankfully, the no-leak lid didn't come loose and it never leaked. My wife was driving that day, so she got a re-usable zip-tie and put around it and it hasn't come loose since.
I'm happy with it. And, the neck on lid where the liquid comes out is long enough that I don't even need a funnel to pour it in to the fuel tank now. Also wrote in Sharpie on the bottle "Fuel Additive, Do Not Drink" just in case someone think's its a water bottle or something.
