Default 250cc pit bottle

I bought a cheap one from tower and it lasted about 2 gallons and now leaks....
I guess you get what you pay for.....
any suggestions for a good one that might last longer than that?

thanks....

I went through like 5 different fuel bottles that were made by tower hobbies.

When the neck ripped I called them up and they would send a replacement. Then this one time I got this lady who said they never sent replacements. Then I asked if they had any stronger bottles. He comment was they tower hobbies doesn't sell and high quaility bottles that don't rip. I hung up.

Give it a shot, or go to your LHS and pick one up.

I would if I had a lhs...

I've been on the phone with tower before.... ended up being a waste of time....

I bought a few packs of some laydown brushes.. when I got them, in the package was one laydown brush and one standup brush.... I tried to tell her they need to check the ones they had.. after I sent the ones I had back and got the new ones.... same problem....
so obviously they didnt check on it.. just grabbed some without even looking at them...
