Hello everyone,

My name is Alex and I am planning on replacing my leaking vertical oil tank (275 gallons) myself. I have planned out the entire project, however, there is one part that is causing me problems. In order to remain in my plumbing area or ability I am planning on using the existing fill and vent lines. The fill like is 2.5" MNPT, however, the new tanks all require 2.0". I'm looking for a reducing bushing that is 2.5" FNPT to 2.0" MNPT. I found the opposite of that on Grainger (2.5" MNPT to 2.0 FNPT) but I cannot find the part I need. Any chance you guys can help out here? If I have to replace the fill lines then I'll have to call a professional and break the bank (trying to save for a wedding). Thank you in advance!!

The fill line is 2" pipe but the OD measures larger. The fill and vent lines will fit.
