Not a problem. each tank needs a electric valve and all the fuel feed lines get taped together before reaching carb or carbs. Valves will be controlled manually with rocker switches in there own panel.

Or set it up so that the engines feed off one centrally located tank and then use electric pumps to move fuel from the saddle tanks into the main tank. This allows you to balance the boat with the on board fuel.

I have (2) IMCO fuel solenoids for the 3 fuel tanks in my Nordic.
You can buy them from IMCO.
