I have 2 BSA 44 fiberglass oil tanks. One has a 5/15-26 threaded hole next to the oil line banjo at the bottom of the tank and the other doesn't. What is the 5/16 threaded hole for. It is a through hole to the inside. TIA. W

do NOT put pump gas in those tanks if they haven't been treated. especially not fuel that has alcohol in it. they will dissolve

It's an oil tank that I posted about but a good point for a fiberglass gas tank.
