Default Want To Add An Additional Tank

I currently have a 2 oz tank in the wing of my Top Cap.I want to place another 2 oz tank against the fuselage above the wing.The tank in the wing has two lines off it,one fuel to carb and one to the muffler(vent).I want the one on the fuselage to be the last one to run down with fuel.Can someone please tell me the correct way to connect these two tanks.Thank you.

If memory serves correctly, this is how it goes. The clunk line to your carb. from tank #1 stays the same as it is now. The clunk line from tank #2 goes to the vent line of tank #1. The vent line of tank #2 now becomes your pressure/fill line.

I think Mr_Scale got it backwards...

If you want the added tank to be the last one to empty, set it up like this:
