aux. fuel tank

I've got this auxiliary fuel tank that will fit across the bed of my truck that is about 12" thick. It's the kind that off highway vehicle owners use. I want to fit a 12 volt pump on it maybe also a gallon meter. Any ideas wher to get?

Are you wanting to convert it to a transfer flow style tank, or just not wanting a bulky hand pump sticking up?

What is a transfer flow style tank? I was thinking of the bulky pump above because that is all I have seen. There is no pump on it at present. It is just a big box with 2 big ol' female threaded fittings on what used to be the top. I would guess about inch and a half NPT threads. I was guessing that one is for fillin' er up and the other for pumpin'er out. It holds something like 100 + gallons. I got it for free and I had 3 thoughts. 1) more capacity-for long trips-not a big issue. 2)help my friend with his bio-Diesel project-give out free samples on the road. 3) paint it nice and cover up the 2 kinks in the front of the bed.;-)
I am assuming if I plumb it as a transfer style tank I would need to rig some plumbing down to the belly tank. Is this correct. Could I still dispense fuel?
