My new to me 1995 Boston Whaler 15 Dauntless, 60 hp Merc 2 stroke came with 2 6.5 gal fuel tanks. Each has a different style connector on it, and the hose will only connect to the one on the left with the shorter pins. I do not see these square plastic connectors for sale, so it seems like my options are either a separate hose for each tank which will mean swapping the hose at the motor end every time I change tanks, or a new tank with the same style fitting as one of my 2 present connectors. If I go for option 2, I still have to identify what style of connector is on one of my present tanks so that they match. No marine stores around here have the tank connectors in stock so I can't just play mix and match. Anyone have suggestions, or can identify what I have? Thank you

OMC, Mercury and Yamaha all have 2 prong plugs that look quite similar. They are available from West, E-bay, etc. Just by looking I can't tell which ones you have.

If it were me, I'd try to find some used ones to mix and match, and then simply tie the hoses together with a 3-way marine gas valve and then you only need to switch the valve and b]never have to disconnect anything. That's how my Whaler is set up.

I switched mine to the round Chrysler ones at the tank. In my opinion they are more reliable.https://www.amazon.com/s?k=chrysler+outboard+fuel+connector&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_PuVuLW5-AIV0xitBh19ugD2EAAYASAAEgJ7HvD_BwE&hvadid=190555460828&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=1028260&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=13445514689701968850&hvtargid=kwd-32122398155&hydadcr=9495_9892223&tag=googhydr-20&ref=pd_sl_4ir1hygv5c_e

Thanks for the answers. I think the 3 way valve might be my best option.
