Use the search button on the bottom of your post and type in "vsop" and search in "r/c gas boats" and its on the 2nd page under RE: My 70" Phantom Inline Build Thread.Hope this helps

Last year I bought some Ozark Trails 600ml aluminum drink bottles at Wal-Mart to use as fuel tanks,but never did them as I switched to IV bags.I was going to use the same setup on the tank as vsop,except I was only going to use 1 tank.

The tanks i have are only 250ml each and £1 each (not sure of the $ exchage rate?)not walmart but the same sort of thing and metalic green, I need small tanks as the boat is only 40" long so it should fly,or crash in a great way (just hope i catch it on film) I just ordered the nipples from Dave Marles here in the UK so i will get the tanks sorted a long time before the boat is ready, because i have other builds going at the same time

After searching for that thread for oh about an hour.....nothing. Went through 30 some pages of threads, only found the twin engine thread as well. I would say though looking at your diagram, that's the correct way. I dont see any other way to do it.
