lp bottle shaped gasoline tank?

I really hate doing this, but I cannot find the thread that mentioned this fuel tank. It is a gasoline tank that is in the shape of an LP bottle that would mount right adjacent to its cousin on the tongue of an AS. Any help. Thanks in advance.

Transfer flow used to sell them but they no longer appear on their web site. They may have been discontinued.

They still show up on some distributor web sites:

Should be easy to make one of those. Would be better to run the gen off of LP.

I looked at this tank a couple of years ago. Sounded like a good idea; but after thinking it through, I didn't want to reduce the amount of propane we carry by half. Also, when I checked with TransferFlow for details on ordering, they said that the price on their Web site was incorrect. The cost given to me on the phone was about double what I saw on the Internet, which makes me think they had accidentally posted the wholesale price on their site. When I checked their site again the following day, the price had been removed.

For us, a six-gallon marine outboard gasoline tank turned out to be much less expensive (around $35), and it doesn't reduce the amount of propane we carry. Also, besides generator fuel, the portable tank is much easier to store and use as an emergency backup for our TV, especially when we don't have our Bambi in tow.
