Re: plumbing a rc nitro to gas fuel tank

Yes you will need the Brown colored stopper. You will also need Tygon tubing. The sylicon tubing for nitro will desolve. The good thing about going gas is.. You dont need to worry about the tank being near the firewall as the fuel is now pumped. This means you can put the fuel tank over the CG and the cg will never change. Remember to loop your vent line and run it out the bottom. The loop will prevent fuel from being syphened out and stop it from pooring on the ground in the event of a nose over.
