I started this thread in hopes that someone made, or knew of a petcock from another bike would work.
Never have run out, I keep track on my odometer. Places I ride seem like gas stations are closed down, or limited hours.
So now I'll just carry these, especially on holidays when gas stations are closed.

Why? what's wrong with the manual version that's already available? No reserve? jamming? (which can be rectified) The manual screw tap is actually a good design just needs a little fettling.
I think you could use any 5/16 outlet tap personally but you would need an adaptor to go from the 5/16 tap outlet to the 12mm pump inlet.

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much room.

I have and like the manual one. Where I ride, often gas stations are few and far between.
Thanksgiving I headed for a multistate ride. Thinking gas stations might be closed (they were) I added some gas I had for lawn tractor.
Now my odometer wasn't going to let me know when I was getting close to empty.
Not sure how long after low fuel light came on before sputter---stop.
Brought a camp stove container, but rather have a reserve option.
No big deal, just thought someone might make a on/off/reserve replacement
