Re: fuel tank stopper

Just drill your holes in the cap a bit smaller than the fuel tubing and 'jam er through'.
It has worked for me with a few SPADS, including using gasoline. Just make sure to use the right fuel tubing. Glow fuel tubing is not gas compatible.
Hobby stores sell a stopper for fuel tanks so you can use gas in them also.

Re: fuel tank stopper

It is the same gas stopper that you would use in a regular tank. For Gas is usually red colour.
And yes... use thygon fuel lines for the plumbing.

I have been using a pop bottle as a gas tank for awhile now and it works awesome.
