Can you use IV bags in nitro boats? Can you use a vent-less system with nitro?

A nitro depends on exhaust pulses to pressurise the fuel tank to help push fuel into the engine. You would have to have a port for the exhaust pressure to feed into, and another for the nitro to flow out of. I dont think temperature would be a concern, but as the exhuast filled the bag, you would need to ensure the port for feeding the nitro is always below the fuel level. The bag would fill up with exhaust,
But nice thinking out of the box.

No. I've seen nitro engines put so much pressure in a regular Sullivan fuel tank that they'd swell up, imagine what it'd do to an IV bag! Nitro engines need the exhaust pressure to feed fuel to the carb whereas gas boat carbs use a diaphragm to draw the fuel up.
BTW, you ought to see what I picked up today! Ain't telling yet but it's evil, wicked, mean and outright nasty!

A lot!
Mostly it was trading with a few bucks throw in. He got my gas 'rigger, a JAE .21 'rigger. a Nova Rossi .12 engine and an RCMK rear exhaust.
I got an Aeromarine Jersey Skiff (hull and hardware), a fully modded RCMK 30cc putting out 7+ HP, some rare bear Zimmerman valved (only 6 made) RCMK, headers, tuned pipe and various other parts. I've got a winter project now but will probably do some engine swapping in one boat for the Skiff and drop the K-30 maybe in my Rampage mono. I don't know what I'm going to do with the other one yet. Both of those engines have the billet blocks.
