    Talking how to suck fuel?

    how in the world do you get the fuel out of that 1 gallon can from traxxas? i dug up the dvd and seen how he sucked it up but that does not work for me - and if it did, how would that work for the last pint in the can?

    do i have to buy a funnel?
    i love this revo thing

    works good for me throghout the whole gallon. Just squeeze the bottle put it in the container and release. It should start sucking. Make sure the neck is tight.

    you're going to have to tilt the can when it starts to get more empty

    I had a little aluminum funnel that i use to get it from the one gallon into my 500cc bottle, I think its much easier then sucking it threw the bottle.

    To start off with i suck up the fuel and as it starts to empty i use a funnel and i agree that it is much easyer and quicker.

    I use a cheap funnel for my gallons. That way, i can fill the bottle all the way to the top, and have to stop to refill it less.

    Your fuel bottle... did it come with a straw the you put on the inside of the bottle? Mine did, When I had the straw inserted like the directions said I couldn't draw fuel in. I removed the straw and all it good.

    I put a 12 inch peace of large fuel line in to the aluminum straw on the fuel bottle and drop it into the gallon sqweeze the bottle and let go. the best part of this trick is no spills.
    If it aint broke dont fix it!
    Have A Nice Day!
