How to plub a transfer tank to trucks fuel tank
I just ordered a 100 gal transfer tank for my '06 F350 (diesel, 4WD, automatic, short bed, crew cab, single rear wheel). My question is, what is the best way to connect the transfer tank to feed the OE fuel tank? I see Transfer Flow makes a unit, but it's like $600.00+. Other then weld a bung on the tank, put a hose on it with a valve, install a T on the fill neck and toss on a check valve. And yes, I know it's not going to be DOT legal in NYS. Screw em. I'm going to fill the transfer tank in NJ where it's .40 a gal cheaper.
*Just a note, the seal on the top of my tank leaks a little if I fill the truck up all the way. So I am planning to drop the tank, clean it out, and replace the seal. If somone has a way to pipe in the transfer tank, and dropping the OE tank is a "need to do", I am not opposed to going that route.
Thanks for the help.
