Default fuel tank position

hi to all !
I'm new in rc world, and i build one air-boat to start with.
Now, when is all finish, problem is come.
Vertical engine mount with horizontal engine. i have only 200cc tank and i mount on opposite side from engine exhaust and placed vertically. top of the tank is in line with carb, but lower side (bottom) of tank is cca 15cm below carb. fuel line is cca 5cm long and i use pressure from exhaust. tank is placed on this side because the space between engine and air-rudder is to small for horizontal tank mount. will be this tank mount ok or i must make new stand, with engine in normal, vertical position, and put tank horizontally in line with engine.
