Actually the fuel tanks are slightly heavier than the SL's, and their design is sketchy. read up on too many people having them blow up due to the manufacture design.

It means exactly what it says. The tasks are not DOT approved so they can not be used in the US...

Research it.

Sure you don't mean the safer tanks? They got some serious leaking problems in the V1 versions, but i havent heard of the Fuel tanks having any. Fuel tanks also got Aluminum liner as ninja SL's.

The Fuel is 650 grams without reg, how much is the SL tanks? Anyway, shouldnt be much difference between them, and you even get a nice ninja reg with the SL's.

Actually I believe the Fuel tanks use a Stainless Steel liner

You have the wrong tank. These are Fuel Supralite
Not the latex lined ones that have problems.
These are stainless steel lined

Yeah 650 grams without reg for the fuel
and ninja SL68 is 712 grams without reg
Sl tank is 225 usd
I wonder if I would get in trouble for having the fuel tank?
I found a paintball shop in uk that can ship to me
I am waiting on a price with shipping. But it will be in British pounds which is 1.50 dollars
I'm thinking total it will be about $400 dollars

Batman your math is off. 194.95 pounds would be 289.60 USD. But then factor in shipping after that. But even then no field would allow you to fill that tank. So you'd buy a paperweight.

No filling location in the US will be able to legally fill that tank without DOT certification, they face a hefty fine from the DOT if they do so

Not sure if it was a leak. There are only so many cyclinder manufacturers, planet eclipse had to choose someone to make a tank for them. The large 3 European choices are

Safer who is producing the Dye ul tank that is currently awaiting DOT approval.

Armotech who used to make Dye's Tanks in Europe, and currently makes Eclipse's tanks.

Stako who yes had some issues in the past but that has been resolved.
