i had a rb fuel gun for 3 years now and it's working great... like what others mentioned here, it's aluminium, so you kinda can't see how much fuel is in there.. wat we did was to drill a hole at the bottom (near the bottom of the storage tank), and install a fuel tube nipple on it... then then put a length of fuel tube about 8 inches long running to the top of it... and now, you got yourself a fuel gauge....

then i switch to the proline gun about 3 months ago as the local distributor pass to us for testing.... was skeptical about it initially as i dun quite like plastics... after using it a couple of times, they are great!!! doens't leak if you keep them upright (all other fuel guns also must keep upright), and can see the fuel level in the gun... this can let you decide if you can push the car another lap or so....

never tried the losi one though...

2 cents...

I just re-read the title of this post again, "Fuel Gun vs. Bottle", and the image of someone feeding milk to a baby with a 'Fuel Gun' popped into my head...

Food coloring works great. I used to run O'donnel and I would always make my fuel purple since I love the Minnesota Vikings and the Arizona Diamond backs.

i pit for a guy that owns a Losi fuel gun and they work awesome. i can pull a faster pit stop with the gun and by myself than with a bottle or another person. the only thing i have seen with the Losi gun is that if the o-rings in the trigger get dirty the trigger tends to stick open. a little fuel on them cleans them up and makes the trigger move easily. yes with the Losi 8t there is no body trimming needed just hit the hole.

the guy i pit for really likes the gun because after a weekend of racing he can take his car home and there is not fuel all over the place. when its done filling its done no spilling no foming and its full.

on if it will do more than one tank and car, the losi holds 200cc of fuel, the numbers on the side of the gun start at 0 at the top and count down, so if u fill it to the top and fill a car u can see how much you put in the tank, ie 7 mins in a buggy and u fill 100cc there was 25cc left in the tank so you can send your driver for 7mins and be comfortable that he will not run out of fuel.

Losi fuel gun two thumbs way up

I have the Team Losi fuel gun and it is dialed. My dad(my pitman) just fills up the gun and puts in his pocket as if it were a holster for a gun. Then when i come into the pits he grabs me and pulls out the fuel gun, and in and out.
If you are interested in getting just a little bit more of an edge, a fuel gun is the way to go. I deffinately recommend the Losi one.

sure the fuel guns look nice, but seriously a lepper could fill a tank up with a fuel bottle just as quick as using a fuel bottle, the only benefit i can see is that it doesnt spill fuel over ur car, as the bottle can.
i have more important things to buy other than a fuel gun ATM, but im sure down the track i will get one because the LOOK SWEET

Fuel guns are the best and if you want to be really fast you must hold the gun slightly above the tank. It won't stop automatically and it won't be clean but if seconds count it's the fastest way.
