That's a merc oil tank.

First thing I'd do is fill it with petrol and leave it for a week or so to see what components can and can't handle the fuel.

After you've proved it will work it might easiest to find the correct fitting for it.

On the fitting one barb is in and one is out so maybe look at running the out hose to the breather coming your stock tank and then the in hose can be the breather.

That way as the main tank has its fuel used up the breather will suck fuel from the small tank.

Does that make sense?

I have no idea about plumping on the S10, but I will jut say I have gone through some growing pains regarding using the vent on a FI bike. For quite awhile the main tank was over pressurizing and blowing fuel out the filler neck into my crotch while riding and onto a hot header.

Especially with a non standard tank you might consider a stand alone setup like a rotopax. I know it's not blingy and you have to actually unscrew the cap but it might be was less of a hassle.

I think on most FI bikes I have seen aux tanks plumbed in through a bulkhead fitting drilled through the main tank like the Iron Butt FJR etc. If it were as simple as going through the vent, I think most of those savvy cats would have been using that method vs drilling a hole in their tank.

Anyways regarding your oil tank, you might call around to an outboard repair shot in your area or ebay or a marina that does repairs.

On your tank diagram, it shows 2 "vent lines" A&B. One is def the slop drain that drains the fuel overflow and water around the neck. That one can not be used to backfill as it doesn't touch the fuel. The other might be a tank vent, but it looks like it's also venting around the slop ring and might be integral to some mechanism in the fuel cap. Shove some stiff monofilament down those drains and see where it comes out. I had to disable the one way valve in my filler cap so that the main tank would vent but my tank only has one straw internally while yours has two.

Obsolete from Mercury Marine??? Maybe from the usual Marine suppliers. Looks like it is still listed in the Paynes Marine catalogue, 033486 but Eh they are Canadian. However they sell the same products as the American suppliers.Scepter or Moelller brand. Sorry not on the coast to go check right at the stores.

Remove your sending unit on the main tank. Drill and install a bulkhead fitting.

This is a company that sells one for a grvity feed for a goldwing....but you can do the same on your bike using the pump to feed the tank

thanks for that link. the parts list will come in handy. but i have a couple issues. my tank has the pump on the bottom.
i am waiting for the tank connection fitting. here is what i am thinking.my remote tank will sit higher than my regular tanks gas pump by at least 6 inches. if i run my existing tank vent to the remote tank out as my tank empties it will draw from the remote tank (like a siphon) without putting extra pressure on the pump. my gas gauge will also still read correctly. when unplugged the tank connection fitting would serve as the vent.
is there any reason that wont work?

I think that will work unless you have air in the line. How about one of them "primer bulbs" on the line just in case you have problems starting the syphoning action.

The aux tank a great idea..but at the end of the day, carrying an extra fuel can or bottles is often a better option.

i dont agree.
rotopax are nice but a rotopax that plugs in is nicer. anything smaller is a waste of time. if you have a tank that plugs in you only have to carry it when you need it, and the plug is hidden when you arent carrying the tank
