I have had great luck with medium blue Prather on the outside of the tanks and Hayes Black Clunk Line in the tanks. The Hayes Line seems to last forever. Here's where I get mine:

That's the stuff. The one and only. Be advised it grows in length some when new, so cut the clunk lines shorter than you normally would.

So are you guys making the clunk line length for the Evo tank the same length as it shows in the instructions. I am running Hi-nitro clunk line, but it won't reach the back of the tank, and when it is long enough to reach the back of the tank, it won't sit on the bottom properly to use all the fuel in the tank. I find it annoying. In the stock position shown in the instructions, I have to be careful when the tank gets between 1/2 to 3/4 empty, I start getting air in the header tank when doing areobatics. I never had that problem with any other heli I have ever owned. I think having that slope up on the back of the tank is a poor design. I read about hayes black fuel line. Is it really the solution? Do you make the line long enough to reach the back of the tank using this line and then it flexs around enough for the clunk to sit on the bottom? What are you guys doing? I think the tank is a poor design.

KSJ has a clunk line, that's made of concertina'd plastic that appears to be the same type as tank plastic. Very flexible, durable and large bored and seems to have done the trick. I use a standard clunk, and reach almost all the fuel in the main tank. I'ts too long for the header tank, however.

Even with 5% nitro I find the black Hayes goes a bit soggy/gooey after a month or two, and needs regular replacement. I've sourced specific medical grade silicone tubing as my solution for the header.
