Default which fuel gun is good?

Can someone recommend a good fuel gun?

I have a RB and it leaks. A team JR, the blk stuff from the seals falls in the fuel and both of them are hard to load fuel in.

The team Losi seems to work very good.

Believe me, the Exceed as the Collari gun and many other brands selling the same gun is not the best. It does not fill up the tank to its maximum and is not as fast as the RB gun. Both are our experiences.
Clubmembers made an adapter on the tip or did shorten the tip to be sure the tank will be filled to its maximum.

The Losi is as good and as fast as the RB gun but will leak less and you can see the fuel level.

So what is good about a fuel gun if it leaks? the "XCEED" is fast and don't leak, but I don't know anything about the "EXCEED" you mentioned.

Every fuelgun will leak a bit....

Take 2 same tanks, get an Xceed gun and a RB gun, fill them up and fill the tanks simultaneously, the RB gun is realy quicker and the end result is that the RB will fill it up to the edge and the Xceed not which can cost you drivetime up to one lap (with a 75cc tank).

The Losi has all the advantages of the RB and not the disadvantages.

But hey, these are just real experiences from just some drivers who just finally ended up with the Losi gun as best option.

The Kyosho gun is a very good one. It leaks very little and a very good job at filling a top without spillage.

+1 for the Proline gun. Mine does not leak. Takes about 2 seconds to fill a 125cc tank.
