[at-l] cleaning fuel bottles


Ok, so I've emptied the fuel bottle and left it sitting around for while,
but it still has that smell.
Kind of like an emptied bottle of Wild Turkey, which at night creates a
fine if brief show when you drop in a lit match.
What kind of show would I get doing the same to an empty but smelling fuel
bottle? I doubt it would hurt the bottle or its mouth ...
What do you think?
