Never had a problem with the Dynamite or Traxxas pit fuel bottles.
The Delta bottle is also good.

I've been using a Kwik-Pit 500cc (made by duratrax) and it has no leak problems.

I've gone through 4 duratrash bottles, they ALWAYS crack/split around the neck of the bottle.

guys i'll give you the secret tip to a fuel bottle to never crack;

LEAVE FUEL IN IT!

the bottles crack around the neck (were the rubber seal is) because the rubber dries up.

if you leave a little fuel in it, 100ml or so it will evaporate and keep the rubber moist. leave the rubber cap on so the evaporation stays in the bottle.

if all else fails use a party baloon, or anything similar ( ) to create a tighter seal...... or seal it up with some silicon gasket.

I didn't own any of them long enough to leave fuel in them, they all cracked the first or second time I used them.

That's my favorite one too.

Sounds like you're tweaking it too hard when you are removing the top of the bottle. Here's the trick. Never remove the nozzle or top from the bottle. To fill, squeeze the bottle, put the tip down into your quart or gallon bottle and suck the fuel into the filler bottle. No mess or spills. Thats the reason I like the 500ml bottle, its more ridgid and draws the fuel in more easily then the larger bottles.
