I have one and used it many times. It still works very well in spite of being about 30 years old! It came supplied with various size fluid reservoir caps at the time and I'm sure there will be one to fit your's in the box. If not, on the included literature/instructions Gunson stated they could supply one to fit if needed.
You say it's for a Yaris which has a "space saver" spare at 60psi. The spare is the most convenient to use. Just bear in mind that the tyre pressure to which the Ezibleed is connected has to be 18psi or lower (important!). So the pressure in the tyre you are using to pressurise the bottle needs to be lowered accordingly - then re-inflated obviously after use.
I would still check if it's suitable to use on your system first. Don't they use a vacuum device now?

The Eeezibleed caps that came in my kit did not fit the Yaris.. so I bled the brakes manually : wedging the footbrake down with a small piece of wood jammed against the front seat to keep air out when tightening the bleed nipples.

Don't forget the clutch is on the same circuit and you should bleed it at the same time as the brakes in case you have any air bubbles in it. (My son's had).
