Adding a fuel tank

Has any one tried adding an above deck 30 gallon or larger tank to their rib? Iíve found a tank that will bolt up to the inserts I all ready have in the deck to hold a cooler. Iím trying to add more range to the craft for runs into northern Canada and fishing trips. My biggest concern is will my fuel pumps handle the extra pull? I will be mounting the tank up front so I will be adding approx. 12í of fuel line and have a quick connect on the spare intake I have on my fuel filter. Will this provide enough flow to feed (2) 90HP tohatsu outboards? Running at about 18 gallons an hours when wide open. I usually only pull about 8-10 gallons an hour. Will the fuel pumps handle the extra pull? I would like to run the fuel line as a rubber house not a hard line.

Yes, the pumps will cope fine.
