Post  Twalther on Mon Sep 18, 2017 10:20 am

Would like to know what others consider the best 2oz fuel tanks and where to buy.

I use Sullivan. While they work fine, I think they're a bit heavy. Regardless of the brand you end up using, I would use the smallest silicon line possible to allow the clunk to move around. The tubing supplied is too stiff IMO.

I use party balloons for a 2oz tank. Very light no vent line and clunk needed and still enables inverted flights...fuel foaming prevented..fills any fuel compartment in plane nose conveniently.

I'm all for party balloons too. Cheap. Easy. Effective.

An inch or so of brass tube, a couple inches of fuel hose pushed on halfway from one end, then some hole punch holes making notches down the length. Get some silicone bracelet rubber bands from the toy aisle at the grocery and use one with a balloon to seal together over the brass tube. Pop the engine feed onto the open end and done!

Make sure the compartment is sealed with epoxy or similar before closing it up, and watch for screws too. A bit of caulk to make fillet corners is a good idea too. A drain is also a consideration.

For RC flight I like the ones from Hayes, the 2oz is number HAY080 (I think). But they recently stopped making them, as far as I know.

Another option is to take almost any other plastic container of the right shape and size, and simply make you own.
