I did see one farmer that put in manual valves with a off position, it took 2 of them. He said the only drawback was that he no longer had a fuel gauge but as it never saw highway use he didn't care, he just refilled the tanks every week from his storage tank. Other than him I haven't seen any other alteration that worked and still allowed everything to function.

Thanks. I would like to have full function of the tanks because I haul an overhead camper with it. You solution may be of practical use though. I only get about 100 miles to the tank anyway.
