Rotopax fuel cans

EVERYWHERE, man I ain't kiddin, EVERYWHERE I go and stop or park to either get gas or go inside to shop, some guy strolls up and asks about my RotoPax gas cans.....It never fails they take notes and write down the name and I go thru the whole sales pitch explaining how they make every size and color and shape and several different mounts for ATV's and whatever.

I went to town this morning and stopped a Micky D's for a sausage egg McGriddle and here came two cops asking about the gas cans, then in the Harbor Freight parking lot both entering the store and leaving, guys were huddled round asking about them.

I can't give their cans and mounts a higher indorsement than what I've experienced with them and the interest they generate.

It's reassuring to find a product and a company today that REALLY is worth investing in. I hope this post serves to inform all here that they are available and fully configurable and adaptable to your needs....You can mount them inside the tailgate, outside on swing out rear bumper tire carriers, on the side of your tj, your ATV, your motorcycle or even your lawn mower

I'm kinda thinking the owners of this forum might wanna seek RotoPax as a paid sponsor, and we guys here start to swap ideas on how/where to mount them like we do so many other aftermarket items.

Hey, we talkin TJ's and limited storage and camping/outback machines that gotta go distant places and be durable and make it home...So yeah extra and safe gas, water, or other fluid storage is kinda required.....I'm into far fetched primitive camping and being self sufficient way outta cell phone range, plus I like looking good in town.

But that's just me

I found out that they are made 100% in the USA too. I can't wait to get mine.

I was pretty excited when I sourced out some "illegal" nato metal gas cans with real pour spouts! I'm not a huge fan of the rotopax design, especially if you want 4+ gallons. They are expensive, low capacity, Carb spouts, bulky, and have funky mounts. If you only want 2 gallons and have money to blow, they look pretty slick.

I can carry gas and water all at once. I would never need more than 4 gallons of gas anyway. They are a cool high quality product.
