Auxilary Tank Install?

I recently purchased a 75gal gravity fill tan. Where to tie it in to fule system? Fuel fill or vent line? My dodge had a rubber vent line so i just put a Y fitting. ut this truck has hard lines for fuel fill and vent. Any suggestions?

There is a kit that is a tee and has a float valve that will quit filling once full.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

I found it easy. Think it's a dodge/ford kit

i have an aux tank in my bed with a pump and nozzle, but eventually i'll be doing the same thing, i've seen people use the overfill tube which i believe is 3/4" hose, i've also heard that tractor supply sells the kits but dunno

You might have better luck searching for a transfer tank kit. An auxilary tank is used with a valve so you can select one tank or the other, a transfer tank transfers fuel to another tank.
