I've not smelled any odors around our Honda either, but that doesn't mean they're not there and not detectible by my nose. I'd rather not take the chance and certainly wouldn't run it in an enclosed space.
I would never store it in a bag. Gas vapor is far more explosive than fluid gas. A nearly empty gas tank is more likely to explode than a full one when there is an accident. Containing any vapor in your house in a bag is a bad idea. I imagine the cases sold for these generators have a vent for that reason.
Maybe I'm being an old lady but the costs of a mistake with gasoline are far greater than the loss of convenience. And I admit that I've transported a 5 gal. gas can inside the back of our SUV (I guess I'm an old lady hypocrite; will I hear from old ladies or hypocrites first?).
