Fuel tanks should be mounted at the CG if possible because your models cg becomes very dynamic the further it is away from the CG as it empties.

I am building the AMR 50 low wing stick and I plan to put my fuel tank at the CG. In my case, I don't really see a problem with this.
I am running a CRRC Pro GF55ii twin.

If your question is will the engine be able to draw fuel from a tank that far away, the answer is yes. The carb has a fuel pump built in it, the engine will run fine no-matter where you put your tank in the plane.
