    Actually I have a couple Brunton 1.0L and one MSR 33Oz MSR bottle. Both types fit in the tool tubes with no problem - the Brunton is a little fatter than the MSR but is shorter so I plan on putting some padding or someting in the lid so it doesn't rattle around. The MSR is a little taller but thinner - that will be fine on it's own I think.

    Every time I go into Cabela's, they have plenty of 33oz. MSR bottles in stock. They keep them over in the outdoor cooking area near the cast iron cookware.

    For MSR 33oz bottles, check Summit Hut. My local one has them in stock as well as the Optimus.

    A good source for Primus bottles including the 1.5 l version is

    http://www.expeditionexchange.com/

    They also carry the Wedco 5, 10 and 20 liter NATO style cans (the 20 liter isn't something you'd probably carry on a bike). I wouldn't use the CARB style cans for carrying fuel on a bike but the NATO style caps have worked well for me.

    I've carried the 1.5 l Primus and the 5 l Wedco laying on their sides as well as upright without any leakage at all. It may help avoid leaks to make sure you don't overfill them past the recommended levels. Unlike water, liquid gasoline expands about 20% with a 40 degree F increase in temperature so if you fill them completely in the morning at 60 degrees then they are likely to leak in the afternoon at 100 degrees.

    For them that are interested, there are 1/2 turn, Olicamp "pour spouts" available to fit most of the ally fuel bottles available. I get mine from "11 Mile Sports" for 2 bucks a pop.

    I think REI has a knock-off of this spout for MSR, Snow Peak and Sigg fuel bottles... for $5.

    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


    I know the 33oz MSR fits with a bit of room to spare
    it looks like the following will fit
    1 liter primus - 3.2 x 10.2
    1 liter optimus - 3.2 x 10.5
    33 oz MSR - 3.25 x 11

    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

    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.

    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:
