Frequently Asked Questions

How do I recycle the empty fuel canisters?

Once you've completed the fuel transfer and the fuel canister has fully emptied, you punch a hole in the canister. This allow the canister to be recycled via most local programs.

The FlipFuel® team uses & recommends this handy potholder & fuel canister recycling tool from OutdoorElement.

What kind of fuel can i transfer with FlipFuel®?

FlipFuel® was designed to transfer fuel for backpacking canisters. These canisters are small, lightweight, and threaded the same. Only transfer like fuel from one canister to another. An attachment for the larger (usually green) fuel canisters is coming, so be sure to sign up for our email notifications and we’ll let you know when that’s ready.

Does this device work with all fuel canister brands?

The FlipFuel® fuel transfer device supports backpacking isobutane fuel canisters.
