An auxilary tank should have an outlet out the bottom the plumbs into the factory fill line, No siphoning needed. A transfer tank requires you to pump it from the top into whatever you happen to be filling

northern tools

northern tool sells the kit to pipe it into the actual tank easy to do about $60.. They also sell pumps the screw in it for transfer to another vehical.. if yours has a tool box its a aux tank.. but go to northern tool. i love my aux tank 70 gallons alot to fill but great for my long trips
