I use the Thunder Tiger or the AE one of the same type. 600+ cc capacity, large diameter tubing, about twice that of normal bottles, and its plastic, less likely to damage anything when your pit guy jams it in there lol

Yep, I love my Byron's bottle. The best thing is that tethered cap....I lost three of them on my old one. The plastic could be a tad softer, but that's really only an issue when I run in the winter.

I know, it's bloody expensive and even doesn't come with a cap, but I haven't seen a better fuel bottle than the Mugen Seiki IMHO

because the top part that is inserted in the bottle is made from aluminum and sealed by o-rings. it's screwed in the neck of the very high quality plastic bottle rather than a piece of rubber just being pushed in, or a plastic top that's screwed onto the bottle and will break easily. this one will probably be the last fuel bottle you'll ever need to buy. but i admit, it's not cheap.
