Converting L shaped Steel transfer to Auxillary

I have an L shaped steel transfer tank that I would like to drill and weld a 3/8 inch nipple with shut off to make it a combo Transfer/ auxillary tank for long trips to Fla. so my lazy a$$ would not have to stop to fill up.
I do not run veggie oil which I know will eat up the epoxy liner in the tank. Is this doable or is there something else I am missing, possibly an additional vent in the top (the fuel filler cap is vented)

May want to vent the transfer tank so it flows properly into the regular tank, you should be good other then that

Most caps for those tanks are vented for pressure and suction. Do you plan on running it straight to the pump and use a selector switch like an obs or do you plan feeding your you primary tank?

this is my setup



going to order a 12v electric valve soon so i can open and close it in the cab.

just brazed a fitting into the filler neck and connected my hose, if i forget to close the aux tank it just backs up behind the cap and stays in the tank vs the ground if you use the vent tube.

just a basic gravity feed setup, all i run is the factory deezee vented cap

My plan was to gravity feed into my filler hose like Alaskan has done, If I do that will I have to add a separate vent to the L transfer tank? If I leave the valve open all of the time will I experience spillage?

no the vent-able cap works fine, you can leave it open all the time but i don't recommend it, the fuel cap wasn't designed to have fuel constantly push up against it. i have accidentally left mine open a few times now and it doesn't leak out with my setup.
