Default Fuel bottles

Who makes the best fuel bottle? I am tired of having the metal pipe come out of the plastic cap.

Thanks,

Scott

I use one of the kyosho soft bottles, other brands have the same bottle as well, but I replaced the spout with a larger diameter one as the rubber bung that it pushes into kept comming loose in the bottle, nice we trick for anyone with he same problem, been goin strong for about a year now.

Agreed. The top and the metal spout is threaded so that you will not have it come loose.

Love mine.

I found a Thunder Tiger bottle that has a bright orange tube and the top screws on and is also sealed with O-Rings. Easy to see, soft plastic and does not leak.
