99 350se oversize tank not draining

What do you guy's do with big tanks and stock carb, where the inlet goes straight up and its higher than the petcock's on the tank. Can you turn the carb. inlet to point forward, or will it leak? O-ringed or epoxied?

i think its a press-fit. i've read about some having success reindexing the inlet tube, and some destroying it.

i have the same tank on my 92, 1st fillup.

how many miles do you get on the left petcock? right? reserves?

i'm using the left petcock main and mileage at 175 this morning. trying to gauge when its fixin to run out.
