(Maybe I missed something in the thread) How will you know where the liquid level is then?
Unless I missed something too, you wouldn't be able to unless you popped off the top cap. The problem I see with steel tanks is that any window you put in would either defeat the purpose of a steel tank (cracks and such) or, if the window were some sort of glass it would require glue or a design which would bulk up the diameter. Always a trade off.

In general, thorn, users who like SS tanks don't care too much about seeing their juice level, I think that preference is mostly aesthetic for most of them. TBH, now that I've been using them for a while I pretty much know how long a full tank will last me so don't really have much need to see my level, but I still do prefer the poly tanks just for the look of them. It just happens to be what suits my tastes.
The response I got from a very polite inquiry to the vendor was that the juice contained VG, apple flavor, strawberry flavor, nicotine and menthol drops only, roughly what I had expected to hear. I may try another tank of it in the near future and see if the discoloration occurs again, but I'm not expecting it to.
I have run some testing in the last week and tried to make the tubes do the same thing that yours did Vega. Mainly by soaking them in some harsh juices like AC, citrus based and straight menthols along with some other strong household liquids. After 3-4 days of soaking, I did manage to destroy/melt a few tubes out of 16 sample tubes (2 of each color) but none ended up leaching any color at all.
I think it had to be just a fluke thing imho.
First look at the upcoming Beveled or "Slant" Cap option. Other than strpr's original of course! Not sure if it will be sold per cap or actually on an assembled tank or both yet. Since some just want a top cap and some want both beveled.
