Only takes once to be remembered for a lifetime.

If filling from both sides into that one tank, the lower side pump can cut off as it should when it reaches full and for the higher side to KEEP ON PUMPING-- all running out the lower side fill.

I never fuel from both sides at the same time, filling my 150 gallon tank takes very little time with one fill and its kind of difficult to observe both at the same time if one nozzle decides to malfunction and not shut off. You wouldn't be real popular at the truck island if that occurred.
