comment Is there any way to dispose of liquid fuel?
A lot of this answer is written as if the person was trying to dispose of the fuel back at home, but the question states that they need to dispose of it because they can't take it on a plane when they go home (a very common situation). If you were back at home with your fuel, you could just pour it back into the can you bought it in.

My application is mountaineering, so it's not possible to bring a huge pot like the 10-quart kettle in the amazon link. Our source of heat is a stove, not a fire in a fire pit.

Am I visualizing correctly that you have a pot big enough so that a 1-liter nalgene bottle floats in it, on its side? Do you have problems with the plastic lid on the nalgene bottle hitting the side of the pot and melting?

@JamesJenkins: Interesting, thanks -- but imsodin's answer seems to show that this is not a useful technique.

Interesting thoughts, +1. I don't think most of the techniques you're suggesting would have worked in our situation. Most of the equipment you suggest would have been too heavy and would have had too little capacity. However, I think you're right that the freezer bags would have been superior to the bucket.
