Default Favorite Fuel Bottle

I need to buy a new fuel bottle and was wanting some recommendations people may have. Out of all the bottles I have used I liked the Losi one the best. No leaks ever and the bottle is easy to squeeze but there might be better out there that I don't know about.

Thanks

Not just saying this because I'm biased, but the O'Donnell bottle is excellent. The body is 'squishy' and controllable, the spout is blue aluminum and adjustable, and it has a little spot to put the cap when you're not using it.

If you happen to see one at your LHS, check it out!

My fav bottle is the team magic or h.a.r.d. Bottle. They come with 2 caps and the top screws in so there's no chance of leaking. I have ahd one for over a year and it's still nice and soft. The only prob is they are very difficult to find. But they are the best bottle I have used. BTW don't get the quick fill one.

The O'Donnell is an excellent pick. The spot to put your cap is pretty cool AND it comes with an extra cap incase you lose your first one.

I love mine, but both caps cracked within 10 seconds. Of course it could have been my inexpeienced pit Dad .

I just picked up some of the flexible caps from Amain so that should end the cracking.

That O'Donnel bottle looks just like the H.A.R.D. or Serpent bottle. I use a H.A.R.D. and Serpent fuel bottle. They are very similar. The only difference is the aluninum spout is screwed in the H.A.R.D. bottle and with the serpent it is just pushed in. Plus the Serpent bottle is softer and darker.
