If I'm not mistaken (and I don't think I am) you are not permitted to have any openings, valves, taps, outlets, or any other intrusions in the sides or bottoms of fuel tanks. All fuel tank penetrations have to be on the top; the reason is obvious.
It certainly would make life easier if we could drain our fuel tanks from the bottom to clean them periodically.
You can polish a turd, but you just end up with a shiny turd.
