I've seen fuel systems with valves for the fuel and return lines... and the valves weren't keyed to each other, so you could have the fuel come out of the port side tank and return to the starboard tank. Always created a huge mess if the return tank was full... UGH..
Last system I helped install, we put in a bar that ties the two valve handles to each other... so you can't turn one without turning the other. It can be removed pretty easily so if you have an emergency, you can do it... but it will prevent it from happening on a casual basis.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
