You guys who are using the Cdn pipe, what and whos fuel tanks are you using. I am trying out a Sullivan cylinder type # 412, 8oz. Its 1. 937 Dia. but its 6" long. Having to put it into 2 3/8" ID with a bit of foam around it. this one works well. What are you guys using?????
I tried a Sullivan 383 7Oz Rect. It works but its tight. Had to reshape it with a heat gun Its 2"x 2 1/8"x 4-15/16"long

I have a great planes 8 oz. tank in mine. There is just enough room for a thin layer of foam.

Hayes 8 oz or a recycled paint bottle. You can get 8 oz bottles of tempra paint from the dollar store. They're tough and flexable and a standard Sullivan stopper fits perfectly in the neck. For a buck I don't mind wasting a bit of paint.

Uh ... that's gonna leave a mark!

In the Das Plas Stick I'm using a Dubro 6oz with a TT 46 Pro engine and I'm getting almost 12 minutes of flying. This is a combat SPAD and I'm running almost full throttle the whole flight and will do so especially in combat. An 8oz would definitey give you a greater margin of fuel and at lesser throttle settings should give you more than enough flying time! These tanks leave enough room for a layer of foam top and bottom and are snug to the sides. Have never had a problem with the tank shifting or foaming and the fuel lines go directly through the centre of the firewall easily!
