I would really prefer to make a channel in it and sling it over the toptube (for aesthetic purposes, i think this would look awesome!) I realized though that Id be creating two troughs essentially. Does this mean Id need two petcocks? How do other gastanks constructed in this fashion do it?
You'll need two petcocks into a "Y" fitting or a crossover. Basically a tube below the tunnel that connects the two halves. The tank pictured shows the two bungs near the top.
