My Kolb has fuel feed suction tubes that go in the top of the tank.
Why can't one just have a supply outlet at the bottom of the tank?
Any ideas from the building pro's please.

Wysiwig, I see that is a plastic "cannister" type tank. The suction fuel fitting on the top is easy to fit , trying to get tools inside the tank is what most likely lead to the set up being what it is. If there is an engine driven pump, and a back-up electric pump , then I would leave well enough alone. You can have an aluminium tank made with the fitting in the bottom, but be sure to also have a fuel drain put in the lowest part while you are at it, and do not forget a vent in either the top of the tank or in the cap. ( But then I am sure you knew all this , seeing as you owned a Cubby
