Typically those types of valves (petcocks) have a reserve position with two inlets in the tank.
If all else fails and the bung isn't internally threaded you could run a 1/8" pipe tap into it and use a standard NPT petcock or use a 10mmX1 tap and use a kit petcock with a gasket.

Hmm, thanks for the tips. I could borrow my friends tap set so I might give that a try.
