I decided to weld a stainless nipple in the left side of the front (Aux) tank. I hope this is a good solution as there appear to be several good
solutions out there. I most liked the fill tube option, but did not feel comfortable with relying on the JB Weld joint. I thought this may be best
because it is easy to inspect for leaks or weld failure. I wanted it in the top but just don't have the clearance and I would not be able to inspect
weld or metal fatigue.

Has anyone had any back pressure issues with returning the fuel in the side?

Take care,
Tom K.
