You can use either one, the outside is much easier to replace the clunk line.

I think if you have the patients and dont mind removing your landing gear and bottom plate every time you need to remove the tank, the center hole is the best to use.

I however am to lazy to do that and I use a fuel magnet so I have been using the side hole with good success. I think if you are going to use the side hole, I would use either a fuel magnet or a header tank.

The outside hole is great is you run a fuel magnet or header tank, otherwise you will have to stick to the center hole. I had a very bad leaking problem on mine with the rubber stopper(the rubber without nipple outlet) in the middle hole as it was VERY LOOSE in the middle hole. The problem was traced to 1. a distorted center hole on the tank and 2. VERY different thickness in wall material of the tank at the center hole and outside hole.

My rubber stopper was "moulded" with gap to fit the thicker wall material on the outside hole(and really fitted well) and my nipple outlet rubber piece was "moulded" to fit the thinner wall material at the center hole. Anyway, 30min epoxy solved the issue.
