Dual Fiji Bottle Fuel Tanks? Anyone?

    I'm building a 1/3 scale super cub, and I'm thinking instead of having my 1 liter fiji bottle fuel tank sticking into the cockpit I was thinking about daisy chaining 2 500ml fiji tanks together up forward so that they're not exposed into the scale cockpit.

    Does anyone have any advise or expertise? or photos?

    thanks!

    Yea! I guess it does work!
     
  4. I ran dual 500ml Fiji's on my Yak for a while. I think I have pictures and can email them to you.

    That would be awesome if you have pictures! Do the tanks feed as a "Y" to the engine?

    no pick up from first tank goes to vent line on second vent on first tank to atmosphere fill line and pick up from second tank
     
  7. Bottle on the left has the fill line. Bottle on the right supplies the carb. The tank level is equalized via the bottom connection between the two tanks. This setup worked great but is somewhat slow to fill.
