I recently got a Patriot one. I kind of like it. It's EXTREMELY flexible and so far no leaks. You just have to be careful because the slightest squeeze will overflow your tank in a heartbeat.

I won a Delta one at an on road race a few years back. It was great until it split on me a few months ago. I had to buy a Cen one from the track to replace it (only thing they had) and it's junk. Leaks like crazy.

As far as fuel bottles, mine leaks as well if you turn it upside down.
I think the idea of the fuel gun, is that you have the fuel tank capacity in the gun ready to go. When the fuel gets low, you simply 'shoot' it in there. This way you do not have to carefully fill it to the top.

i use a team magic super soft fuel bottle. they are the same as the serpent and axial fuel bottles ...just re-badged for different companies.

but yes it is fantastic...no leaks and easy to fill and easy to dispense.

I swear by the Losi bottles. One going on 10 months of squeezing at least 3 times a week.


It's is entertaining calling down to pit lane to ask someone to fuel. "The Losi bottle with the tape!"

My car is an RC8

+3 on the Dynamite fast fueler, I'm on the same one for 2+ seasons now, no issues, cheap and reliable.

Everyone I know who has had an OFNA (the big soft one with the blue spout) has leaked at the threads where the spout meets the bottle.

fuel guns are for very quick fuel stops. The gun is filled to exact capacity of your tank and unloaded with a spring and trigger. also a good function of the fuel gun is your able to measure how much fuel you had left before your refuel. Thats if your pit guy knows what hes doing...
