Default Losi Speed Shot Fuel Gun

I just bought a brand new losi speed shot fuel gun on "clearance" and the piece of junk leaks like crazy! I never even got to use it? Poured fuel in it and soon as I turned it downwards it drips out BAD. Any one else have the same prob. I can't return it either because it was on clearance. Sucks!

Take it apart, grease up all the o-rings and stretch the spring. You'll need to re-grease the o-rings quite often to keep it in tip top condition.

They all leak. I consider it normal for a losi fuel gun to leak. Try some of the stuff posted above. If it still leaks, like mine does, just hold it upside down until your car is on pit lane and you're ready to use it. Also don't fill it up until a minute or two before they're pitting.

Mine only leaks if it's been set on it's side then picked up and pointed down. It comes out the vents. I haven't found one yet that doesn't do that. Aside from that it don't leak.
