This IMO this is the better way to plumb thru the vent tube with a T.
Slower transfer, less chance of issues with the fuel gauge.
Just remember to pay attention to the fuel gauge as your transferring, when it hits about 3/4 tank stop the transferring.
It’ll continue to go up a little from there.

I have a RDS 60 gallon aux tank with tool box, electric pump with normally closed solenoid on a switch when running warning light in the cab, powered only when ignition is on.
I recently added a 3mm amber LED flashing light next to my CTS2 on the dash, much easier to see when fuel is transferring, so hopefully I won’t forget.
