However, the plastic used in those is polycarbonate. Bisphenol A is NOT found in PET and cannot, therefore, leach into anything from it. There is no research which has established anything like a dangerous level of leeching of any substance from PET. Antimony came the closest (but is of very low toxicity) but even that was found at less than one third of maximum acceptable levels.
PET bottles are safe to re-use and, as Dunc says, are ideal for pressurised drinks (which is why pressurised drinks are sold in them). You will NOT be poisoned.

It helps even out the amount of sugar going into each bottle reducing the chance of a bottle bomb. Also a lot less fiddly than trying to measure out tiny amounts of sugar into 40+ bottles.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
