External fuel tank and fuel line/connector question

Hi
Im am after an external fuel tank, line and connector for my Hidea 5hp outboard.
Basically I need to know what the best setup is including best material for the tank and the connector type that would fit the outboard..
I think a max of a 12 ltr will do for me...

Plastic tank would be best, for the connector you could google it and buy the proper connector

A 3 gal tank with proper fuel fittings is best in terms of fuel lasting and size. A 6 gal is huge and will last a boating lifetime with a 5HP.

Happy Boating
