4.0 out of 5 starsThis is wonderful for extended run times
March 7, 2018
This is wonderful for extended run times. Issues in countered I found have to do with the EPA for venting the gas can and the fitting. If you leave the lid tight on it then and its in the back end of your pickup it’ll balloon up. So I don’t tighten the lid all the way down. Also after more than a year in use now the Parker DM quick-coupler is sticking and difficult to uncouple and recouple. I figured I’d just purchase a new female quick-couple and replace it. After going to Parker’s website I discovered that the hose barb female quick couple end that is on this unit isn’t even on their website. Perhaps it’s only available to this manufacturer of the gas tanks. I can however get a quick couple, thread a hose barb into it and use that for replacement, but I want the original. I suppose IPI could sell me a complete replacement hose with the ends in it for my unit that isn’t very old. I’m in a love hate relationship with Parker fittings. I love the size and how they function. I hate their low durability and high cost.

5.0 out of 5 starsJust what I was looking for.
November 9, 2017
I read all of the reviews prior to purchasing this tank along with the response from the company on the bad reviews. Here is my experience: First, this tank looks like it was made specifically for the Honda 2000 series of generator. I had no trouble with the threads mating up or any part of the installation. Second, the first night we used it the temperature dropped to 17degrees and I had no gas line freeze up. I have learned to run nothing in my small engines except 90+ octane fuel and to avoid gasoline with any ethanol. Third, it holds a little over 6 gallons of fuel so running my generator all night was no issue. Yes, the tank does swell but it did not leak anywhere. I did bleed it whenever I added fuel but the swelling is part of the design as it is now illegal to vent fuel tanks directly into the atmosphere, same as on my car.

5.0 out of 5 starsWorks as advertised. Great buy
January 27, 2018
Got and used this on our last camping trip. We have to run the generator all night due to family member medical issues and it prevented us from having to loose power mid night and have to get up and deal with it. Also used it again recently when we had a house full to power a trailer with power, saving cost on propane. Works as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 starsVERY useful and works well
November 22, 2013
I have a Honda EU2000i generator that this tank is connected to. About 6 months after I got the tank I had to use it. We had a tornado near my house and tons of trees were ripped up. We were without power for 3 or 4 days. I ran a few lights and our refrigerator on the generator and it ran non-stop the whole time. Only had to put gas in the tank because it was low.
07/21/2015 update: I originally bought this in February of 2013. For the first year it was in my garage, with my generator, and I used it a couple times when power went out. Worked very well. Now I have it mounted on my Cricket Trailer to not only extend the use of the generator (which is also mounted on the trailer) but also serve as spare fuel for my van when towing the trailer. It’s been outdoors now for over a year and is holding up perfectly. I do have it covered, protected from the sun, with a canvas cover.

5.0 out of 5 starsMust have during hurricane season!
November 29, 2018
I bought this for my sister as a birthday present, and then helped her test it before hurricane season. It works great!! It was super easy to set up, and she hasn’t had a single issue out of it. If you are going to have a small Honda generator, you really should have more run time than the small factory fuel tank offers.

5.0 out of 5 starsExtra Run Time – A Big Plus
July 22, 2018
I bought a Honda EU2000i generator and the Breeze Extended Run after our “Sandy” experience in New Jersey. Haven’t had to use for several years but today the electricity went out for over 12 hours. Everything worked great and was able to run the refrigerator, WI-fi, internet phone, television, computers and charge my cell phone, . Oven is gas so no problem there. Would have been better if I had read the instructions first, but that goes against my nature.
