Gary the fuel bottle has to be horizontal for it to work best. You want it so it is picking up the fuel as a liquid.

Ah - ok. Thanks for the tip Gerald. I had the idea that it would be ok either way but I'll certainly try it on its side.

Gary,
Make sure you get it on the side where the tube inside the tank is down in the fuel, if you get it wrong it draws vapor and may go out.

Yeah, I will Gerald. I think there's a kind of stand thing that ensures it's the right way up.
