110 fuel tank question

Hi, looking for a way to get fuel to a webasto and noticed on the fuel tank, right front corner, a end piece that looks like it could go down into the tank(looks like fuel line end).
Looked at a few digrams of a 110 tank and they do show up though nothing indicating what there are for.
planning on removing the cap and blowing air into to and listen for bubbles, any input of what there're for would be great

What tank.....I have installed quite a few pick up tubes... Those tubes you are talking about could be breather tubes.

Run the tank down and drop the tank. Add a pick up tube and be done with it. It's a 2-3 hour job. While you are in there you can clean up the frame and do some preventive work.

If you dig around on Nakatanenga.de you'll find a pickup that installs in the filler hose and drops a line into the tank. Kinda clever.

Jim, I assume this would be under the section 'Tanks und Zubehör' but I can't find what part you are referring to.

The front of the tank should be the return line. You might have one to three other lines to the rear of the tank that are your vent tubes. If you have multiple vent lines they are to vent the tank while off road so that one will not be blocked off, since they terminate at different locations in the tank. Depending upon the tank you have you may have a pick up line on top of the tank and or one on the side of the tank.
