Default Fuel jug

The caps on my fuel jugs straight from the hobby shop have a tendency to leak.

is there a nitro fuel safe alternative reusable container that anyone uses or recommends for about a gallon at a time?

Ask the local club/LHS for an empty used can

Vp gallon aluminum can. By far the best fuel can when stored. Not to mention the fuel itself is tops.

VP isnít sold locally anywhere near me and I like the brand we run at our track. But I did find someone who keeps their extra VP cans and is going to give me a few.

Apparently my plastic gallon jugs donít have the plug that goes in before the screw cap and thatís why they leak a little bit.

The fuel I buy is Omega brand and the bottles have the red bottle plugs you desire. You can contact the manufacture or ask you r LHS if they have any extras. Or buy the plugs yourself. Tapered Caps & Plugs with Wide Flanges | W Series | Caplugs W-14x

I just found these ✅ Auto Parts Round Plastic Tapered Hole Plugs Caplugs - Select Size & Qty ✅ | eBay
same size. PMI-33 cheaper.

Just to add, I've been using a 1-litre bottle left over from cleaning alcohol for my leftover fuel or when I mix leftover brews. They are usually very thick and up to the job, and this one has a quality thread cap - bonus point it's the same thread as on my fuel bottles, so I can just screw on the filler and use it directly.
