These brass fittings are re-usable. The hose fit for these is about 3.96 mm or 5/32.

Although the 18 inch line has been used up to 100cc thes fitting are more appropriate for the larger fuel line associated with over 100 cc class engines.

To use one for a vent line it is necessary to dremel off the end farthest from the threads and use like the plastic fitting noted above.

Once the smoke settles and I have finished updating the website, I will add the larger Fiji bottles.

I prefer the Fiji because of the mechanical seal in the cap...

You cant believe what goes in ones mind when walking the aisle of a grocer or convenience store...We look at them all...

I agree about the Fiji bottles- the cap is better. I have two gas stoppers ready to go on my next two tanks. I prefer the fittings, like you have, but the stoppers actually fit pretty tight in the neck of the bottle giving it a positive seal.

I've had rotten luck with the Fiji caps splitting at the fuel pick up bulkhead fitting. Been using Pepsi bottle caps, since they are Blue.

Did you glue them? All the ones that I have seen crack were glued.

Let me ask this question. How many cracked lids do you think they see at the grocery store?

This is why I have learned to not glue them but to finger tight them and then shrink tube over that so the finger tight cap cant move. I hooked up a bunch of bros at the pro bro site last year with these fuel tanks... zero cap issues thus far.

I used a smart water bottle on my last plane . I put seal all on the threads before i screwed on the top . I also learned to use a small grinding cone to cut the hole in the water bottle and not a drill bit .

Used a little honda bond on the first one, nothing on the 2nd one. Still cracked at the bulkhead fitting.
