Nitro in gas/smoke tank?


Sorry for the dumb questions

So, I am getting ready to run smoke in a 4 stroke Sukhoi..

I know I can't run smoke fluid through a Nitro system..

I have a couple of Sullivan tanks, and if I am reading it correctly, the black stoppers are OK for Gas/Smoke/Diesel, and the white stoppers are for Nitro fuels.

Is it OK to run Nitro fuels through the black stopper systems, or does the Nitro attack the rubber?

I assume it is not OK, and that is why both tanks are available, but I just wanted to check for sure..

Thanks!

Most glow fuel tank stoppers are black. The ones for gas/kerosene (diesel fuel or smoke oil) are brown.

Follow up:

I talked to Sullivan just now..

Black stopper is for Gas/Diesel/Smoke.

White stopper is for Nitro fuels..

Nitro fuels will eat the Black stopper, so no mixing of the two can be done..

Thanks IvanC for posting back, I appreciate it..

Sorry, my bad - I should have checked it first.

Sullivan uses different color coding for their stoppers than Dubro and Great Planes. Dubro and Great Planes stoppers are black for glow, brown for gas/diesel/smoke. Sullivan are white for glow, black for gas/diesel/smoke.
