It is possible I will not find these online or Home Depot but just in case, does not hurt to ask.. if I can't find these, will just have to buy the pre-made setup.

Yes, I know it is simple to just remove the existing fuel line and just move it over to the new tank but it is nice to be able to refuel and leave the line/all parts attached since the quick coupler prevents fuel leak and dangling hose can easily be carried while refueling.

Would anyone know what size are these parts in the GenXdirect link

1. Fuel line
2. The small brass fitting that screws into the 90 degree tank elbow
3. The small Quick Coupler connector at other end of fuel line


This is the 2nd tank I wanted to buy, already have the fuel cap for EU7000 so that part is not needed for the quick connection and this setup works perfectly on the 6 gallon tank


Here is the existing 6 gallon tank with the same parts 1,2,3 attached

I’m not sure what brand connectors those are, they look very similar to airline quick connects.
Attwood/Honda connectors are readily available on the Amazon.
Do you have a b.e.r.g system or just the cap?

Yes, the complete 6 gallon berg with tank, cap, all connectors. They are of course all pre-assembled and there is no parts list, other than going back to purchase the complete kit for the fuel line and fittings. Seems to me that I could find those parts especially if these are standard marine supply parts but not sure.

pm if you need quick couplers extended run line links.
also look at a local marine or boat shop.
if you have a tank and hose system now take the parts with you as there are several different connections sizes that look alike!
we use the honda marine quick couplers on our systems here easy to remember as we use the honda generators.

Paul, the Scepter 12 gallon tank is in your Amazon link list but it is not clear what the 2 end parts are for connection to this tank. One is Brass, the other is Silver Quick coupler. I can easily find the fuel hose but unsure what precise size is the quick connector coupler (male) in my existing setup (the last image in my original post). Since this area is a disease hotspot with hospitals full (both vaccinated and un-), prefer not to shop in-person for anything at this time so about the only thing I can think of is order random parts from Amazon and hope one or more is the correct fit and then return the wrong parts.

most of the plastic marine tanks are 1/4 npt female at the tank outlet.

and the honda marine male quick couplers are 1/4 npt on the one end.
and I use 2 females on the hoses so it is barbed on the one end of the female for the hose side and quick on the other.
then use the smooth copper rings with the proper tool to make the connection for a no snag safe osha approved good looking hose.

So this would be the one end that screws into the 12 gallon Scepter tank fitting

Then this would be the Quick coupler on the other end of the hose and this would connect to the Fuel Cap connector (from the existing bergs cap)

If those are the correct parts then all I need is a fuel hose - is anything missing ? I have compression clamps already unless something else is needed.

i use the honda male fitting on the tank as well as the cap side.
then use the female barbed quick coupling on both ends of the hose.

that way you only need one hose set for multi tanks.
the silverado 4000 hose is the best in low perm hose.
it lasts way longer than gates by far....
and does not shed the black or gray on things.

Can you link to directly the Amazon page for ".....I use the honda male fitting... " - unless that is the Attwood part I linked. So you use 2 of them. That means I would also have to buy one more quick coupler - female - to attach to the hose


Getting too complicated, maybe easiest to just buy the $50.00 parts kit from genXdirect
