Fuel Bottle

I've got one of those plastic screw on lid tubes that hold tractor owners manuals and I need to know where I can get a fuel bottle that fits inside it. Anybody know?

I would suggest from backpack, climbing, bicycle, camping supply section of stores which sell alcohol stoves or Colman stoves and lanterns would have Aluminum fuel bottles.

MSR has fuel bottles; don't know if they'd fit inside a tractor manual canister or not . . . or your particular tool tube . . .why not get BRACKETS for the fuel containers?

Depends on the size of your holder. Google will help you find fuel bottles then view their specs.

Here is a 30 oz aluminum fuel bottle with 3 x 11 inches dimensions. Is your holder big enough?

Researched more and it looks like the MSR 30 fits perfect.

I really wanted it in the tube and find a place to "hide" it. Looks like "hiding" it may be an issue.

I wish my Versys had a reserve like the KLR's do. I do have a gas gauge but I have to learn to watch it. On the KLR, I never worried because I could always turn the valve and go get fuel.
