AEV Fuel tank modification

Here I modify the AEV fuel caddy to pump out the fuel instead of using the gravity siphon.  The AEV gravity siphon is fine, but it always leaves 1-2 gallons of gas in the caddy due to etc design of the tank, and getting the thick hose to the lowest point.  I was able to use smaller gas line and line snake to guide the gas line to etc lots point.  Removing the tank is also easier as you can easily guide the gas line.  The fuel pump is great too and its “cooler” and cleaner.  Using “quick release” disconnects makes the job faster and less likely to spill gas.  I got all the part from Amazon or summit racing.

Below is all the parts that I have used
