well a gallon should last about 50-55 tanks...give or take a few...as far as longer run times?? less throttle....i havn't seen a replacement "large" tank for the measly 75cc tank.

I use one of my unused boat fuel tanks. It's a 4oz that gives me 15-20mins on my TH ST-15

EDIT: Although the fuel does slosh around when the tank is near empty. Which leans the engine out if I'm accelerating/turning hard. But I just run in a straight line for the most part so it's great.

you could always do what pilotwings did and strap an mgt fuel tank onto your chassis, but im not sure you want to do that. anyways, in terms of run times, with my fuel guzzling .18 ill get almost 10 minutes, give or take a few depending on how much throttle i use.

haha it works perfectly though!! I used two screws through the existing holes in the chassis in the back of the tank, and secured the front with 3 zipties wrapped around the chassis. It's not attractive at all, but it's just for bashing!!!

1 US gallon = 3,785.4118 cc
So one gallon will last you precisely 50.472157333333333333333333333333 tanks.
