I've notice my 1.5 Fuel ultra light air bottle losing its fill the last six months. It was due it's first test at the end of April 2017.
So today after filling it I put some water over the reg and bottle and had a fizzing of water in the picture as marked. Just wondering if anyone has a fuel bottle that's having the same problem. If so please check.

I have now removed the reg and bottle grip and have had my local site destroy the bottle for me.

I`m sure it was only the "o" ring seating to the reg, that was a bit extreem of you doing that ?? Can`t mend that now ??

Its picured the solid resin neck of the bottle with a hairline fracture. not sure an o ring would help

Nope the reg seats higher up. It's not in a place where an oring should be or could go. It's where the bottle meets the neck of the threaded bit to meet the reg.

All I'm saying is if you have a bottle that loses air make sure you check here. I thought it was the fill nipple oring. Checked the reg seat oring. Just felt that I needed to investigate more and very glad I did. New bottle is cheaper than losing an arm. Because no burst disc could stop this failure.
