There won't be a lot of room for pouring gas into the top of the tank and lifting it in and out will be a PITA. I'm thinking about a portable tank like used in small boats running to the fuel intake bypassing the top mounted tank altogether.
Man...I gotta tell you... what you are talking about is scaring me!!! I can't believe no one else is saying what a dangerous situation this could be. Seriously, please re-think what you are talking about doing. The generator you are talking about is going to put out a tremendous amount of toxic fumes, not to mention the heat!
From what I know about this, the front area is designed for a propane onan-type generator properly installed by someone trained in this area. The front area can be used to transport a generator but is not the place to run one. For safety's sake, please check with your qualified dealer's service department (not the sales department), who knows about these things and not exclusively from comments on this forum. IMHO
