Re: Fuel Idea
Yup. right now he has a soft hose with a weight, but it has yet to be tested off road.
Airplanes (like my dads) have multiple pickups on the bottom of the tank, although this works well, they have to be on the BOTTOM of the tank.
If.. there was a plastic, and it didn't corrode, I don't see why this wouldn't work.
It would be impossibly to suck air right? No air in the bladder, no air to the engine.
So it wouldn't matter if you were upside down in zero gravity, you'd still be pumping fuel.
maybe it's a little extreme for wheeling.. I'll have to mention it to my dad and see what he thinks.. cause he's scared to death that one of his fuel lines is going to leak, and puke fuel all over the inside of the plane.
