Couple different ways to do it. Some companies make rubber components MADE FOR FUEL. That makes it easy to adjust and clamp in place.

Have also seen custom welded tubes made to reroute.

DO NOT WELD ON A GAS TANK NO MATTER HOW LONG IT'S BEEN EMPTY AND OPEN UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. It's very easy to kill yourself even if you don't smell gas. Get a professional to do it. It will include, at least, filling the tank with water while you are working on it.
