Fuel Jugs/Cans

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have asked this question before but i am still on the hunt for a suitable fuel jug/can that will fit into my toolbox/flight kit. I have found some plastic jars that have been working but I find this plastic is to thin and starting to become very weak. So now once again I am looking for ideas for fueling systems. Something approx 6-8" tall by 4" Dia would be a good fit for my kit. Also I have seen many jugs made out of the orginal jug, my question is how are you tapping the tops with the fueling connectors, I have tried but seem to make a complete mess of the top. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well,here's what I've used for years.Empty vinigar jugs.They cone in a variety of sizes and are thick wall plastic.Just go to the grocery store then buy the BIGGEST order of french fries and smother them in vinigar.
Once you've recovered from that,wash out the jug with soap and water.Rince REALLY well. Bingo! Fuel jug!!!

or if you don' t want to waste all that vinegar.....make a one time purchase of a quart of fuel. They come in Us quarts which are smaller than a litre.....

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

Tim, I purchased one of the 50 oz Dubro fuel tanks and put it in the bottom of my flight box with the lines to the tanks and pump then I use a coiled line to fuel my planes and Helis.

50 oz is usually more than enough fuel for the average flying day, Now big events are a different story!

I use a plastic toolbox about 22" available at Canadian Tire or Walmart, with my panel mounted in the front. Works great.

Check out a hairdresser shop. They have all sizes and if you can talk nice to them they will save them for you.
