So I came in from paddy hopping, smelled gas around the truck and this is what I found. Still trying to get info from Toyota and I find nothing online. This is either a drain plug or rather , someone tapped my tank at some point. Any ideas? 2013 model

Not knowing the year of your Tundra, yes some fuel tanks have a drain plug. The gasket can get worn or torn if it was removed at some point.

Seems it would be at the lowest point of the tank , no ?
Not necessarily...think about the oil drain plug. Manufacturers are more concerned about you bottoming out and ruining the plug and having liquid pour out than your ability to get every last drop. I'd look at an OEM Toyota parts diagram for your specific year and see if you see it there. If you don't see it, just call up the parts department at a Toyota dealership and tell them you need a new drain plug for your fuel tank because it is leaking. They will either be able to find it or say WTF.

Toyota knows dick about this hole in the tank. According to Parts, there is NO plug for the fuel tank.

Oh well, anyone have a Contraband Inspection Cam that you’d borrow me??

I owned a 2000 Tundra and currently run a 2007. No drain plug.

Maybe previous owner filled with diesel and had to drain it. I would not want to be drilling holes in a fuel cell.

If you do get a new tank, look into a larger tank.
