Aux Tank Connection

Recommended Posts

Hey 2nd gen guys running an aux tank... how do you have it hooked up to the main tank?

There's that aux port... I have heard that the main tank may overflow using that.... yes? no?

I have asked on TDR and no one can give me a straight answer. :-x

I'm trying to save the $75 on the Northern Tools hookup deal if I can.

hey nate what we didon my dads was run a little electronic fuel pump that pluged into the 7 blade adapter in the rear and then ran 3/8" fule hose down through the stake pocket and T'ed in to the main fule neck the rubber hose that goes from the fueler neck to the tank and added a 90* shutoff valve into the 3/8" hose and put an on off switch for the electronic pump did all of this for about $35 pump included hope this gives ya an idea

I think I'm just going to get the Northern Tools setup to keep it safe.

As I understand, there's some sort of float valve that allows fuel to flow when the main tank level drops below full and cuts it off when the fuel fills to the top of the fill neck.

No extra pressure on the main with a straight run to it from the aux tank.

There's some kind of check valve in that setup, I've never seen plumbing fittings with such a thing.

What I'm gonna do is order it and I can return it if it's something I can build myself :smokin
