I think each tank should have a stand alone vent.  Unless you have 2 vent fittings on the same tank.  Not sure where your tee fitting is.  Just my humble opinion

Both vents are from the same tank so I am not opposed to running them together...

I didn’t see anything in abyc fuel regs mentioning a carbon canister.   It’s a dull read but there is useful info there.

The carbon fumes-absorber gizmo is NOT REQUIRED unless you are building boats commercially, e.g. registered with the USCG as a boat manufacturer.

I doubt the sheriff or the DMV, or even the USCG is going to inspect for these on a boat in your possession.  The USCG conducts inspections at the boat manufacturer to make sure they understand what the rules are and are following them.  Even then, unless they show up at just the right time, the boat's either gone or still in construction ... "not done yet" is a fair answer.  I doubt there are any rules, unlike catalytic converters, that says an owner has to leave it in the boat and can't yank it out.  Dunno ... but read the rules carefully, and if you're a homebuilder and will get a homebuilt type HIN, then you're off the hook.

The carbon canister is an EPA requirement from what I read but maybe it's a recommended thing. I can't say 100% about much unless you want to talk commercial cabinet making.

Maybe not required but there are more than one option of you want to comply with epa certification: I cant believe I said the word "comply", I despise that word!

Carbon canisters are an easy install just a little spendey at $160 each x2 when you have 2 tanks
