View Full Version : Quick Fill Fuel Line
01-29-2003, 08:28 AM
I have seen a quick fuel fill line on a buggy once in a video. Does anyone have one on their Rustler? If so, please let me know how you made it. I would love to have one. TIA.

Are you talking about a primer? Ofna has a Fuel Filter/Primer Pump, Stone Part #10168 $11.95
Or are you talking about a Fill Hole for a fuel pump. I use a hand crank fuel pump attached to my fuel can. I drop the line into the tank and fill. You can find a one way outlet that could attach to the tank if you look around. My friend had that set up on his Tmaxx.

No, I am looking for a way to fuel the truck as if I were in a long race and you are stopping in a pit.
I will explain it this way. I was watching a video of a track and a buggy came into the pit, the buy picked the buggy, fueled it up (without removing the body) and pt it back down and off he went. Actually, there were two guys. One help the buggy and the other fueled it up. It was really cool. I will try and find the video again and show you where to watch it.

do you mean something like this

You are getting closer, hehehe. I have seen one of those before and they are quick and awesome. Actually this is a tube that I believe sticks up through the top of the body that goes to the fuel tank and will allow you to fill the tank WITHOUT taking off the body.
CLICK HERE (http://www.rccaraction.com/rz/cars/video.asp) and go down to PIT CREW and download the 1.2MB file and you will see what I am talking about.

They are using a normal fuel bottle to fill up the tank:
They may have attached a zip-tie to the fuel tank lid to work as a handle, but I can't see one in that video.

Tazz R/C owner & mercenario,

I use the zip tie as Tazz said. I took it one step further. I cut a rectangular hole in my windshield that goes 3/4 of the way across. The hole goes a little short of the top of the windshield. Then I cut a slit on the passenger side of the hole that goes up and just into the roof. With the zip tie on the fuel tank cap, pull it open and hold in slit. Cut a piece of fuel line that is the same as the length of zip tie from the slit to where it attaches to the cap(with the cap open). Slip that on to the tie and hold in place with a zip tie head (cut the head of a zip tie and use just the head). Then cut a 1 inch piece of fuel line. slip it on and secure with another zip tie head. To use reach in the hole, grap the end head, pull to open cap and slide the zip tie into the slot with other head(first one you installed) on the outside of the slot and the fuel tubing inside the slot. Let go and the cap will stay open for fueling. It helps if you bevel the fuel line below the first head you put on so you can slide it into the slit easy. HHmmmmmmmm, clear as mud!!
