The 33 oz MSR bottle will fit in the tool tube. There is about 0.2" of play side to side, and maybe under 0.5" from the top of the bottle to the cap of the tool tube. If one puts some thin foam in the bottom of the tube and the cap, it might hold the fuel bottle and prevent it from rattling.







And with the cap screwed on fully:

Ok i have compiled all the sizes i can, if anyone can think of a brand i missed let me know
the instruciton manual tube measures:
3.19" or 3 3/16" inches in diameter
about 11.63" or 11 5/8" long on the inside with the cap fully screwed down
you can gain about a half inch if you screw the cap only a few turns if that matters to anyone

Agri Supply now ships out a new model. Same price @ 4.99. A little longer and bigger in diameter with different mounting holes and from the looks of it maybe a different shade of black. Ordered 6 last night. Capt D.

Ordered four (new model) this morning, two will go in the car, and two on the GS - a perfect, neat, pennytech storage solution.

Old/original cannister #65728 was 11.50" long and 3" diameter. New cannister #67670 is 12" long and 3.25" diameter with three 1/4" mounting holes on front and one 3/8" hole on back. Looks to be a flat black or maybe charcoal black as opposed to the glossy black of the old ones. Capt D.

interesting mine measures 3.25 x 12 but doesnt have the mounting hole configuration like your describing. perhaps there are 3 different ones floating around.

do you have a photo of yours?

the one pictured is the item i received. It doesnt have 3 1/4 mounting holes its has 2 3/8 mounting holes. so either the item in the photo isnt the item being shipped or it is described incorrectly

Amazon.com has the Brunton 1 liter (34oz) fuel bottles for $12 with free shipping on orders over $25.

Works good with this bottle holder:

The "old" one and the "new" one basically look the same.

I just got my tubes from Agrisupply last week. I didn't know there were two styles. What I received were the "old style" tubes. I soaked the mounting tabs in boiling water to soften them so I could form the to the contours of my top box. I bolted them on using SS carriage bolts with acorn nuts and sealing washers on the inside.

A little brake cleaner took the yellow markings right off.

I don't think you read the post. He's not talking about the products linked earlier in the thread.

Edit: I think he's talking about these:
