The Oscar-B Fuel Tank provides fuel to attached liquid fuel engines.

It is currently the smallest liquid fuel tank in the game, containing enough fuel to run the tiny LV-1 at full throttle for 309 seconds. It carries 67% of the capacity of the next largest fuel tank (the ROUND-8 Toroidal Fuel Tank) and 20% of the capacity of the FL-T200 Fuel Tank.

Despite its vastly smaller size, the Oscar-B has the same mass ratio and attachment properties as the FL-T, Rockomax, and Kerbodyne tanks, making it suitable in most-any case where marginally more propellant is required.

Product description

The Oscar-B Fuel Tank from Probodobodyne is a compact fuel container for small space probes, or a backup tank for other small spacecraft. Do not wash in cold water, or feed after midnight.
