rotopax one gallon container

Having heard no objections I so ordered the RotoPax one gallon gas can. It arrived today. Seems sturdy--I'd guess 3 or four times thicker than your usual plastic gas can. It fits quite easily beside the generator in the 24 quart Action Packer. A second one or a two gallon would fit.

Threads on cap are huge so it seems to seal well. I comes with the fussy new "no vent" pour spout which fits inside. I don't think it will spill any fuel, but no matter - you will already have it all over your hands from fishing the spout out and installing it.

I wasn't smart enough to think of this earlier, but their mounting systems might easily be rigged to the back of the propane tank cover (using a backer plate inside the tank cover).

Has anyone come up with a storage container for the Honda 3000i Handi?

Thanks, Jack Hornbeck

For my Honda EU2000i storage I bought:

One Rubbermaid Roughneck 18 gallon bin (the silver one pictured with flat lid) AND one 32 gallon Rubbermaid Roughneck Trashcan (comes with raised lid). Both from Auburn CA True Value Hardware.

presto, chango:

I now have an 18 gallon bin with raised lid. Generator fits snug, smaller unit to stow than the actionpacker (which is $24.99 at Roseville CA Walmart yesterday).

And a new 32gal trash can for home, now with flat lid.

Lid snaps on snug (but not gasket sealed). 2500 miles with gen bin in back of packed SUV, haven't smelled it yet.

Does anyone have a propane converted eu2000i using the ActionPacker for storage? I don't have the conversion yet to measure, but using the following pic, I'm estimating it would need just under 13" of width, if a 90 degree elbow fitting is used to attach the hose to the regulator shown. Would the ActionPacker accommodate that width internally? With 15 feet of 1/2" hose coiled up in there. I'd have to order mail-order, so I'd don;t want it ending up too small.

I used a 24 gallon action packer but had to cut out for the gas cap. Fits well now and is very solid

I know this is a old thread but today I purchased the ActionPacker for my Honda EU 2000i ..fits into the container perfectly however the gas cap is too fat to fit into the channels of the lid, so cant get the lid to sit down on the container. Did any of you have this issue? Did the gas cap lid get fatter? I purchased this generator in 2013 if that helps.
Thanks

If it has the California cap, you will want to buy a 49 state cap. Or, you can cut some away from the inner lid.

The 49 state cap is still a bit tight, but if you heat the area the cap presses against with a heat gun (on low) and gently but quickly install the lid over the gen, it will cool to a concave state on the inner ribs of the lid.

Thank You, broke out the trusty hair dryer, heated the area and now have the lid snapped on with some weights on top of it. Concerned bout the seal.. seems its not sealing tightly. Will see how it shapes up and then put some of that insulation tape stuff along the rim to give it a better seal. Want to keep the fumes inside.

They really don't seal. I bought some rubber seal at HD and glued it in place with polyurethane sealer. The self stick tape on the seal just slides around. The seal will actually give you about 1/8" of extra height too. handles snap closed a bit tighter, but it works.

.....on gluing a good seal on the lid. I also marked the lock handle & lid and use a spring clip.
Works better if the lid is installed only one way and the handles stay secured if bumped around.
