I'm looking to eschew the siphon hose bundled with my AEV fuel tank.
I'm thinking I'd like to place a fitting in the bottom corner of the tank with a compact valve and maybe some kind of quick disconnect. This seems like a lot less hassle than the jiggle hose siphon setup. Plus would allow for better emptying of the tank.
Problem is I'm having a hard time finding the fitting I want to pass through the tank wall. I need it to reliably seal around the hole I'll be putting in the plastic tank. I'm not sure exactly what that is called. I found lots of bulkhead fittings designed to pass a line through some other wall/bulkhead, but nothing specifically to use as a tank drain... (other than some petcock style one that turned up in my searches)
Someone show some mercy on me and fill me in on what that fitting would be called. Can't really Google it until I know what to call it.
