For the money this is a bargain, machined, anodized aluminum, drain tube and magnetic dipstick.

Go solar. I haven't used my Honda 2000W gen since adding 400w of solar. YMMV

Curious if you know what's the ROI on a Solar setup.

Have a pair of EU2000 since 2005 with a bazillion hours and oil changes once annually each fall.

I put the gens on 2x4 blocks on edge (which I have laying around) and tilt to drain into a dollar-store cat litterbox (basically a roughly 9x12x3" plastic container.) The EU2000 already has the little trough to direct the drainage. No extra parts purchased.

I use a tiny (cheap) funnel to refill, I think it was from WalMart or similar. I tilt it to the non-fill side and grossly overfill, then tilt level and drain the excess in to the litterbox via the built-in trough. There is very little waste overall but it works well for me. I am over 1k hours for both EU2000 gens and they run like new. You're overthinking it.
