truck bed gas filler hose question

moved the tank under the new bed on a 51' chevy but fitting on the tank is a different size than the bed filler. does any one know where you can buy 1 7/8" hose reduced to 1 1/2" hose?

This probably won't work but is worth a try. Can you take a 1 1/2 inch piece of hose, cut off an inch or so, put it on the filler and then put the 1 7/8 hose over it, clamp it down and be ok?
