Need help with external tank

I would plumb it into the vent line, b/w the hose and metal line from fuel cap. You'd never have to open you're fuel cap again, as long as you have A BIGGER AIR LINE ALLOWING AIR TO ENTER THE TANK

I have used this particular kit.. works great. Otherwise a direct drain into one of the capped vents on your tank would work as well.

Just make sure you have a valve plumbed in for safety.
