Default Best Quality Fuel Bottle

I know most guys on here race and use fuel guns but I'm trying to find a good quality bottle. My Mugen bottle has started leaking. I'm wondering if it's because I've stored fuel inside.

Not available. I read that the Byron bottle was one of the best but not in stock anywhere. I know the Absolute bottle looks very similar. I wonder if it's the same quality.

I got the Samix fuel bottle https://www.amainhobbies.com/samix-f...002-bk/p720440 and it's really good. I like that it has an aluminum cap that screws down over the plug and fuel nozzle to hold it together. Only con I have is that the cap for the nozzle can come off easily and isnt attached in any way.

Iíve had the serpent fuel bottle for 5years and no problems. I believe the kyosho fuel bottle is the same so it should work good also

I saw a review that said that the Kyosho bottle leaks. Anyone have any experience with the Hudy bottle?

The biggest reason fuel bottles leak is because they were left in the sun and the uv weaked the plastic mixture. You go to squeeze it dry to suck up fuel and it starts to split. I just consider them disposable and replace every few months. I think ive been using traxxas bottles lately as they were 99c for a while at the lhs and the bottle itself fits on my cheapo dynamite fuel gun. If its white or dyed plastic chances are it wont last long, same with sharp lines in the molds.

So the Absolute bottle is the same quality as the Byron bottle? If not, I'll just try my chances with the Hudy.
