Get an aluminium tank fabbed up for the spare wheel well.

Something like this. Holds more than 40l. Obviously you wouldn't need all the diesel / vege oil paraphernalia

I would have thought you would want to keep the weight over or in front of the rear axle to maintain a better centre of gravity, tail heavy is no good for steering.

I plan on getting a fuel tank either made up myself or modifying something to fit in the spare wheel bay. I plan on using it to refill the main tank using a fuel pump rather than have it run the engine directly. Also the pump operation will be linked to the fuel tank level so it cant be run dry.

My question is could I use a t-piece in the fuel filler vent or would I be better off putting a new inlet into the tank?

A new inlet I think.

My aux tanks (x2) in the Triton have a T piece inserted into the main filler which feeds fuel to the aux tanks once the OEM tank is full, and then an additional breather coming back and T pieced to the original breather. The aux tanks then gravity feed back into the OEM tank via an inlet inserted in the OEM tank at about 3/4 height.
