Why would one fuel guage always show quicker fuel

Customer Question

Why would one fuel guage always show quicker fuel consumption on one of my mercruiser gas engines? I fill them both and after running them both several times, one will be near half full and the other near empty. When I go to refill it, sure enough one will take twice as much fuel to refill.

I rarely run the generator, so that's not the issue.

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Do you have fuel selector valves on the boat, valves that allow either engine to draw from either tank?
