    Why do you need to return to two tanks?
    I had twin tanks in a river blown jet piece. The easiest way to run was a gauge in one tank. A transfer pump (small) in the secondary tank. When sitting and having a beer, turn on the transfer pump, watch the gauge. Worked pretty easy.
    That way, return fuel to only one tank.

    Boost referenced regulator? Gas I assume? Why. Keep fuel pressure up (no problem with that pump), properly jet, and go for it.

    8-71 twin dominators on gas. Has two SS 20 gallon saddle tanks. The current way too small mechanical pump draws out of both tanks simutaniously although it has two sending units?? thought if I get fuel from both tanks I could return it to both tanks through a distribution block to keep tanks ballanced. Do I need a boost referenced regulator?? I'm all ears to advise. thanxs david

    Just plumb the return line back to the feed line in front of the pump. I have been running the same pump on my twin turbo motor and have it set up this way. Just put the return line as far as possible away from the pump inlet.

    No you dont need a boost ref regulator. Reference is need only to compensate for blow through pressure that counters the fuel pressure. 1lbs of boost = fuel pressure increase of 1 lbs exc.

    I have run this for 4 years, but that is why I said to tie into the feed line well in front of the pump.

    I would say the 13204 reg would be your choice. my .02
    You can leave the ref port empty.

    Just split the return line back to each tank. I'm using -10 into regulator. -8 out of regulator into a -6 tee. -6 back to each tank.

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    My current setup has a line from each tank to a T-fitting then directly to the pump. There wouldn't be much distance after the T before the line goes into the pump.

    You idea is 100%
    Be alot nicer if he used the 11202 and a standard 4 port reg for his dual carbs though. Problem with that pump is killing 40 sum psi through a regulator.
