RotoPax Fuel Containers

Have any of you used the RotoPax (carb compliant) fuel containers? I'm thinking of getting a couple of 2 gallon packs, and carrying them on my roof rack. The 5 gallon jerry cans are simply too heavy for me to use anymore.

I've read lots of good reviews on the RotoPax system...

Prices are relative to ease of use and how well the product is made imo... at my stage in life, and for my intended/needed use. And I figured to start with 2, that's 4 gallons. If I like them a lot, I'll add 2 more. And yes, I go that far off the road.... because I'm off the road sometimes for a week or two at a time. No disrespect taken.... you don't know my needs. That's all. Plus.... while I'm in Mexico, if I can have an extra 4-8 gallons on board, it saves having to put the Mexi gas in.... on short trips (I live down here... and if I want to go do a bit of exploring.... it's easy to go through a tank. And I'm back and forth from Encinitas to Northern Baja all summer/fall. Live both places.

So. Back to my question. Has anyone used these?

Thanks!
