We cut the hose in half then went to lowes and got a 4.5" long pipe threaded on both ends. it is 1" in diameter. Cost like 2 dollars

Now when on the truck we pushed it all the way till it was touching the stock metal part that comes down and then put the hose clamp right at the edge of the pipe. There is still at least 1.5" after the hose clam on the tank side

x2 Lowes is the place to go. When relocating my filler neck to the inside of the bed, we just bought a pipe and a hose that the gas wouldnt eat...The hose was clear with white criss cross things...Forgot the name of it though.

Like this (but I think 2" diameter)
