Auxillary Fuel Tank Question

I am getting ready to install a Freightliner fuel tank in the bed of my 01 Powerstroke & I am looking for advise on how to route the plumbing. I would like to set it up on a gravity feed into the main tank since it is a sealed system. Once the aux tank empties the fuel guage would start to move. Is this possible? Please advise.

the gravity feed is fine, but i would reccomend a dump valve...when the main tank is at a quarter, you dump till its full and then close the dump valve........Marc
