Diesel tank

I bought a new diesel tank online and it didnít have any instructions. There are 4 holes on top. The largest is definitely the fuel fill. So how do I figure which is the fuel pickupó fuel returnó- and vent?
I appreciate any advice

Sure sounds right to me.
The fuel pickup will have a dip tube, if not then your supposed to supply the dip tube, West Marine sells good ones made from plastic, cut off to the correct length, screw it in.
Iíd fit a dip tube on the return as well, I just donít like falling fuel, the vent you leave alone of course.

Re: Diesel tank
There’s 2 dipsticks but 1 seems to have a float or something in it so I’m confused???

Re: Diesel tank
Take a picture maybe, or call who made it?
I donít know either about the float or something.
