    I use 5 gallon plastic fuel containers. If a little pressure builds up, they swell rather than vent and let gas fumes out. I have 5 of them. I rotate them from time to time in my cars. I add Stabil to the can before filling so I always have fresh fuel available. Gasoline weighs 7 pounds per gallon and 5 gallons is all I want to carry. We get thunderstorms here and some can take the power out for a long time. Get one with a handle on the top and side to make using them easier.

    I have two generators and both have Generac gen sets. The engines on both are Briggs and Stratton. The 5500 watt unit is a Wheel House brand and the 8000 watt unit is a Generac brand. Both have low oil shut offs. The 8000 watt is electric start. I usually use the smaller one to power my refrigerator, a couple of lights, a window air unit and maybe a TV.

    Thought I would throw my 2c in. Look to non gas and use propane, easier to store and travel with. I live on OBX NC my house has a 16k with two 150 lb propane tanks. I also use on event sites 3 different types of portables from 2000i Yamaha up to 12000 and all run on propane.
    You won't have travel restrictions in tunnel and such traveling with propane vs gas cans. Won't go bad and you can always find a place to swap out the smaller tanks
