He said fuel gun.

It is really hit and miss on getting a gun that doesn't leak like crazy. Currently I have a Novarossi branded gun that works well and doesn't leak. I think its best to find a gun where o-rings are available because they will eventually start to leak.

The fastest is still the old (orange) RB gun.

A new set of O-rings solves the issue with the RB. The new RB as the Losi are also nice guns but a tiny bit slower. All these mentioned do not have a part sticking into the tank, they will fill the tank up to the upper edge.

Guns like the Collari and Xceed have to be pushed into the tank using some space. When the tank is full and you take out the gun there is some not filled space.

The Xceed version 2 had been redesigned and has no extra sticking into the tank so will fill to the top. I had the same problem with a proline gun i was using. I went on the hunt and as soon as i saw to xceed V2 i brought it and has never leaked and is very fast!!!

One of the better fuel gun I have seen was one made by Kyosho. It leaked very little and it was all metal. One of my LHS had one that they put in the 50% sales bucket and I was able to pick it up for $35.00 (yes, it would have been $75.00 with tax, street price).
