I have a couple of Sullivan rt 1.5 oz tanks that Got some years back. I like them real well. Now I can't find them stock anywhere. Anyone know a source to get them.

The smaller the engine, the less sucking power it's going to have. If the tank is more or less centered for level flight, then you've done about as good as you can do. Keep the fuel line pinched off [until the engine's started] to avoid flooding the engine. If the engine seems to be too sensitive to changes in head pressure, then start with less fuel onboard. If that fails, then the engines could be made to run more consistently in all angles of attack with a pressure bladder system. This is a "Last Resort", but I've gone this route with a .020 that was too worn out to draw fuel very well.
