how to I retrofit this tank for remote fuel filler?

How do I retrofit this tank to get a remote filler e.g. like a car. and what bits do I Need ?

The tank is curently filled by opening the jockey seat and remove the cap to fill. I do not know
if there is some fitting I can get to modify the tank for remote filling.

Is that a Tempo tank, or possibly a Moeller? You can get remote fill kits for them.

Boat Fuel Tanks, Jerry Cans, Boat Fuel Carriers, Boat Fuel Lines.

I assume that they screw directly onto where the fuel cap is placed.

Make sure the tank has a separate fitting for the vent hose if you fit a remote filler.

In that case, you should be fine with the remote fill kit.
