    I get these items in small batches (10-15 tanks at a time) and they seem to sell out fast.

    I just got another lot last night so I'm ready to resume shipping.

    PM me or hit me direct at davismfg at gmail if you're interested.

    I'm leaving for Lake Powell next week so this is the last batch I'll be shipping for ~3+ weeks.

    Just a word to the wise. The Eco-spout that comes with the gas pack does not work and will make you have a bad day when you need that gallon of gas.

    You need to buy the self -venting spout that comes with the water pack for $10. It works no matter what.

    Test yours before you need it or check this out:

      Junk! Was discovered to be defective upon 1st emergency use. When I needed to pour into my atv, it was necessary to tilt and pour minus the inoperative spout. The quality is not commensurate with the price!

      Absolute junk. If you want a leaky spout, this is the one you want. Now spend another 10 bucks for one of the water spouts.

      Does not work. First time I tried to use it on the trail, it would not let fuel through despite it being in the "unlocked" position as described in the manual. Had to pour straight from can which makes a mess. Don't buy this piece of California friendly crap!

      Piece of junk. Got it with my 2 gallon can and couldn't even get a single drop out of it no matter how I turned the eco-spout mechanism. Thank god we didn't have to actually use it on the trail...this was after I got home and wanted to empty the fuel from the pack. I am ordering the yellow self-venting spout to replace this for my 2 gallon flat pack.

      Ran out of gas on my GS in the middle of the Nevada desert. Set to unlock...no gas... mutilated it in rage...poured straight from the can through a makeshift oil bottle spout...Send me a new non-eco spout rotopax!
    Mine did not work at all either! other wise a great product:clap<!-- /end social networking snippet --><!-- /central space -->

    I agree. The Eco spouts are a bit lame.

    This latest batch of tanks I've been shipping this week all have the normal yellow venting spouts. I'm not going to send any more Eco friendly spouts.

    Friends,

    I just got another shipment of Rotopax in only these are factory firsts with the excellent yellow spouts.

    ALL of these tanks come with the Rotopax No Leak Guarantee and you can send them directly to Rotopax for any warranty issues. I buy these from the owner, not some copy-market in China.

    I ONLY HAVE RED 1 GALLON TANKS AND SINGLE MOUNT PACKS.

    So, the prices for the factory firsts and mounts:

    $35 for the tank.

    $25 for the mount (I don't get breaks on the hardware, there's just no money in them).

    PRIORITY SHIPPING FOR BOTH MOUNT AND TANK:

    $12 USPS within the USA.

    That's $72 for the package.

    I'll take Paypal--gift is preferred but regular payments are okay, too.

    You can PM me here or hit me directly at davismfg at gmail

    I might have one water tank left from the last run, but if I do it's a white one. I'm not getting anymore water tanks.

    I'll look tonight and see about the white one.

    No, I can't get anything other than the 1G tanks and pak mounts.

    This isn't really a side job for me, it's something I do 2-3 times a year and this might be the last batch for a while.

    I've already shipped half of the 25 that I got, so if anyone wants some, get it soon.

    Did you find another white water?

    If so I want a white water, a red gas and 1 mount.
    Do you still have my paypal info to request payment?

    Let me know...

    Sorry man. I got behind. My Aunt is now on her deathbed. Such is life for me (6 deaths and counting over the past 2 years, ranging in age from 15 to 68).

    I'll get you the invoice today.

    Super fast shipping, just like last time.

    Thanks and sorry to hear of your losses. I have been through several myself. It is never easy and I don't envy you at all.

    Thanks for the great service and the awesome value.

    Thanks, Mr. Fisherman, for the kind words and an update that you got your gear.

    Most of the orders I got went out very quickly, but I messed up on one or two since I had so much going on (sorry again, SantaRosa).

    I'm caught up on all the orders and everything shipped w tracking numbers.

    I have about 4 sets left if anyone wants them--this will be my last batch for a few months.
