speedway .

I bought the fuel filler and cap from speedway drill and tap for screw on, , I tapped a hole for a compression fitting on the top. , 5/16 I think. then bought a new steel line at the parts store, cut the end at 45 * then drilled thru the fitting so the tube would go all the way thru to the bottom then up i/8 and tightened the compression nut...For a vent I got one out of a 70's ford pickup tank and drilled a hole with a uni-bit step drillbit for the ford grommet then pop in the vent

hum, whats the deposit on a keg today??
Nowhere near the fine for having one. Unless it has a bill of sale from a scrap yard.

I worked in the beverage business for more than a few years. The bottlers get real unfriendly about losing their usable containers. Cost a local utility company here thousands of dollars for mis-using deposit containers.

The last beer keg I welded a couple of bungs and a spout for wine making for a buddy. It was in fact stainless. TIG'ed them up and pressure test. All good. I would imagine any stainless motorcycle tank bungs and fill caps will work as well as stainless NPT bungs to thread in for fuel feed fittings and returns. The possibilities are endless.
