Gray tank vent

I will be adding a gray tank to my Caravel. It will be below the floor. The black tank will be eliminated as I am going to a composting toilet. It can be vented out the existing black tank vent stack.
The question is : can I vent the new gray tank out the vent that the kitchen and bath sinks vent out of? Or do I need to use the vent stack that the black tank uses now?
Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

You can vent it into either one. If you tap into the one with the sinks, Just make sure where you tap into is higher than any drain.
Also if the black tank was the only thing on that vent, and you are not going to use it, you should remove it and patch the roof or cap the pipe where it comes out of the roof so rain does not get in.

Thank you for the help!
The black tank vent will be used for the composting toilet.
