Uh, read the first post
Hi, Just wanted to stop in and thank all you Adventure Riders for purchasing our NEW 1 GALLON FUEL PACK. We are starting to mold it this coming Monday and it is really going to be a GREAT Fuel Pack. Looks like it may be our BEST SELLER yet!
We also have a NEW milled Aluminum Mount and Mount Extension for stacking the packs.
We will start shipping the 1 Gallon on the 7th or 8th and will ship them in the order we receive orders until we can catch the manufacturing up to the demand.
I have set up a discount code at rotopax.com for all you Adventure Riders that will allow for a 20% discount from the website pricing. You simply enter: ADVRIDER after you put the items in your cart before checking out on our NEW simple 1 page checkout. (Sorry to all the guys that were trying to use our old system that was having software issues!)
The size of the NEW 1 Gallon RotopaX is: 13.50" x 9.75" x 3" and it weights 2 pounds.
It is being supplied with the Scepter brand of self breathing flex spout (Yellow) until the middle of the year when it must become a CARB type spout to conform to the new national EPA regulations.
Please note we cannot ship to California at this time until we are approved by the State to sell our product there, but are happy to ship to any other State.
Feel free to call me with any questions. I spend most of the time on the phone so please leave a message if you get my voice mail and I will return your call the same day.
Thanks Again for all the Support! Jason with RotopaX.com... 801-299-1885
Hi Jason, cannot see pictures of 1 gall packs on your site, looks like a link issue.
Any pics of the new mount?
Ordered a 1 gal and mount and goofed on the discount code....next time I guess.
That's cool. How do we order the milled mount? I only see the steel one on the site....

Found it on e-Bay - http://tinyurl.com/Rotopax-Milled-Aluminum-Mount
It says in the description that it's only for the 2 gallon containers but I think that's just a slip/typo because the 1 gallons are just coming out - cant see how it wouldn't work as all their different containers seem to be interchangeable.
Welcome Jason! Glad you were able to join the forum!
Jason; I ordered a one gallon from you last week by phone. Still get my discount?
Just looked at the Aluminum mount....she is beautiful....must have. Going to drop the boys at Rotopax a line and see if I can switch my order!
Just e-mailed Jason and an aluminum mount is en route!
Hi, it's Jason from RotopaX. You are right! In the middle of this year all the C.A.R.B. regulations take effect on ALL portable fuel containers so buy em now as a good thing is coming to an end.
I am putting a handful away to give to my grandkids in 30 years...
I was just at your site 5 minutes ago trying to order. Everything locked up.
Seeing how your up, can I call?
UPDATE: New 1 Gallon Container and New Aluminum Mounts!
I've added this information to the first post as well...
Jason has now released the 1 gallon fuel container, as well as a new aluminum mount for the Rotopax 1 and 2 gallon containers. He asked me to post up some pictures here as the pic's are not on the website. The new mount looks great!
Single container mount...
Mount with extension, holds two containers...
One container mounted, double mount extension ready for another...
Again, you can mount a single container on these or use the extension and convert it to a double mount...
Back of mount bracket...
These look great!
The new mounts look nice. Any idea when the following will be available?
* One gallon water jugs
* Locking mounts
I took some measurements and two of the one gallon jugs would fit nicely on my DR650's "BBQ" rack...
pfb, I know it's not your job () but any chance you could add the 1gal and 2 gal dimensions to your first post?
I'm confused on how the bracket plate above is designed to be mounted - what is the curved lip for? Is there another bracket plate for say mounting your fuel pack to a flat surface such as an aluminum tail rack or is it just a matter of mounting the X hold-down assembly itself directly to the tail rack?
I'm guessing that the flat metal piece is actually a separate part. A "Polaris RZR Mounting Plate" is also shown on the web site, presumably designed specifically for the Polaris.
I think the mount itself has no backing plate, but is designed to mount just with the two bolts that are shown to whatever surface you want. The pictures show the mounting bracket bolted to the Polaris mounting plate...
As for dimensions, I don't have 'em!
Those do look great! Nicely done. I could see how, with a little fiddling, that bracket could drape over a rear rack rail. Maybe add a little polymer padding underneath to protect the rail (like on the Metal Mule panniers). Another strip of padding at the bottom rail, provided loose to account for different rack dimensions. If there were then two slots (rather than one) both top and bottom that would allow pipe clamps or heavy duty zip ties to slip through, you'd have a readily adaptable/removable mount for under Dirt Bagz, Ortlieb panniers and other soft luggage.

I also forgot the code - oops!
I ordered a mount and would like to get the milled one - Is that possible?
Just got notification from Outdoor Products and UPS that the gas tank has shipped. Looking forward to getting it. Will post some pics after I get it on my 1200GS.
