    ok, so I'm lookin at fuel cells for my trail rig and I'm not sure which one to get, I want a bigger one so I can actually go more than a mile before I run outta gas.. I'm looking into the offroad ones (obviously) just kinda wondering if I should go alumminum or plastic? anyone have any experience, or know the pros and cons of both?

    thanks!!

    i went with a 20g aluminum one from summit... I'll have a 5 gallon can for backup too. V8s need lots o gas... so I didn't want to get anything smaller after being used to a 31 gallon tank for so long. ;) Plastics ones dont seem like they would be as durable to me...
