Default Best fuel bottle?

Hi.

I need a goooood fuel bottle. I've a Byron but it is rather stiff in the plastic.

Which bottles are soft, durable and have a nice big tube (diameter)?

Thanks in advance

I have the Losi and the O'Donnell one...they are both nice, but the O'Donnell one may be a bit nicer.

My choice:

Mugen Fuel Bottle:

nearly indestructible and the top part is made of aluminum and screwed into the bottleneck

I picked up a pack of extra fuel bottle lids from 4chobbysupply.com just because I can't ever seem to keep up with them! Only a few bucks but well worth it.

I like the shape of the Byrons 550cc bottle (it's oval, not round) which makes for a more stable base.

Whatever you do, do NOT get a fuel bottle with a pressure fit spout--they shrink over time and you have no way of keeping the fuel in the bottle (I had the XTM bottle...HORRIBLE).

Be sure to get a screw-on type spout.

Thanks a lot gentlemen

I'll try the O'Donnell (like the soft bottles).

A little strange you can't buy bottles with bigger tubes, like in the early '90. With those you could fill a tank in approx. 1 second, because the big hole didn't produced a high pressure, so the fuel didn't foamed.

Get yourself one of these:

Then it doesn't matter what kind of fuel bottle you have, as long as it holds fuel. Less mess, ultra-fast fuel ups.
