When trying to pour water from a bottle to another bottle this is not possible.

Similar issue for me last night. .58 exp with old UI. I had a 49% full canteen (damaged) in-hand and was trying to pour into a 0% full canteen (pristine) on the floor. I kept trying to pouring, dropping, picking up, and it was acting like nothing was happening. At some point it seems like both were 0%, then I picked up the pristine canteen and it was 98% full. Somehow I duped the liquid.
Now it pours ok but fails to update the contents %.
Moving the "empty" target bottle to another inventory slot causes the contents to then show correctly. Also right clicking on the "empty" bottle gives the Drink option (the correct indication).
They seemed to have the water pouring problems fixed for a while.
The present problem is a less complicated problem than previously.
My impression is that water is no longer being either lost or duped.
It's just the % contents that is not updating immediately after pouring.
I have not tried pouring petrol.
The incident i reported above did show that duping is possible. I was able to fill in empty canteen, drink it whole or empty it, then refill, etc etc as long as i wanted. Dropping bottle or canteen to the ground was usually enough to update its current capacity %.
What I have experienced is that the water status of canteens is not updating after a pour. When you move around the canteens after you pour water in them the canteen status updates.
The liquid gets poured correctly the UI just doesn't indicate that the % has changed unless you force it to update.
