How to plumb an aux. fuel tank.

I fabbed up a aux fuel tank to go under my truck box and I need to know how you all would recomend I route the transfer line to the fuel tank. I would really like to gravity feed it for simplicitys sake but would be willing to put a small 12v fuel pump to help the fuel along. I looked at the kit from Northern tool but it is for the newer models and not my oldy. Any help would be appreciated.

FPR shim
DIY Tymar intake
GFS SVO system (runs awsome)

Check your fuel fill hose to see what it's diameter is and see if this one will fit - look at the note under "Addt'l Product Specs" about fitting some older Ford pickups. Diesel Install Kit for Auxiliary Diesel Fuel Tank — Fits Chevy/GMC Trucks, Model# 011029 | Auxiliary Fuel Tanks | Northern Tool + Equipment

Furthermore, this paper may help in your installation if you haven't already done it.

Good luck.
