T in fuel line

I have a kicker motor that has its own separate fuel tank. It is a 4 stroke. I want to install a T of some sort so that it takes its fuel from the main tank of my boat. What is the best method or perhaps the simplest method to perform this task?
Thank you.

You can buy a brass barbed fitting to do what you want.

You might want to put a valve on that second fuel line.
Ive seen some main engine fuel starving by sucking air
from the outboard connector when not plugged in.

How about an elec pump mounted next to main tank so there is always pressure no matter which motor is running?

Hi, thats fine for the main.
Make sure you dont develop any pressure
leaks at the connector for the aux engine
or overpressurize its small fuel pump
when connected. sounds good?
