Default Multi-engine fuel system

Hey ya'll,

I'm doing some research on a potential R/C drone build and was hoping to get some advice on the fuel system. We're planning on incorporating 4 rotors, each powered by a gas engine. My question: can you have all of the engines drawing fuel from a single tank, and if so, what would that setup look like? Or does each engine need to have an independent fuel system?

Thanks

a single main fuel cell with a pump should be able to supply 4 engines or more if you have a secondary tank for each engine. each secondary tank should have an overflow back to the main tank helping to elininate air bubbles going to engines.
