Try Kolpin?

Have you thought of checking out the Kolpin Fuel Packs? Amazon seems to have the best deals on the Kolpins.

Stay away from these guys!

Order only from a reputable retailer, which Great Outdoor Products in Utah is not.

BTW ... the 1.75 gal fuel container will hold 2 gallons.

Happy customer

Have ordered from these guys before with no problems and just put another order in and got quick confirmation of it. The discount still worked for 10 percent off as well. I don't know what the bashing is about but I have recommended them to friends as well as use them myself.

Yup, they'll take your money and fill the order. (And it's a great product.) But try canceling an order, returning an order ... and you'll have a memorable encounter. And your local retailer will look pretty good ... sales tax and all.

Living on an island in Alaska with 14 miles of paved road, no local retailers look that good. Sorry you had a difficult time with returns and the what not. I do understand how frustrating it can be.

Yeah, placed an order on Sunday evening. Had shipping confirmation by 9:45am on Monday. And they ADV discount code worked.

No real complaints from me.

I wasn't bashing. Just stating my experience.
The discount code wasn't working for me and they never responded to my e-mails.
Which I guess is a good thing.
I ended up finding the RotoPax stuff cheaper elsewhere, and even got a 15% discount and free shipping from that same place.
My recommendation is to shop around and avoid the actual RotoPax web sight if you really want this stuff at a cheaper price.
That's what I did.

Never had a problem dealing with Jason at RotoPax.

He actually exchanged 2 2-gallon RotoPax that I'd purchased for ones without spouts...no questions asked.

Later...order a 1-gallon RotoPax from them. No problems, again.

YMMV.

Do a google search for coupon codes for them.
That's how I got my discount.

I just checked and it seems to have some sort of error.
So yeah, the RotoPax sight is down.

Hey!

Would someone be so kind and provide me with the measurements on the picture please. I am making a luggage rack for my bike and would like to have the holes ready for when I get the Rotopax.



Thanks!

A= 2" and 3/4"
B= 2" and 3/16"
C= 2" and 9/16"

Sorry. I don't have a metric ruler. But these measurements are extremely close.
They might be a hair off.
