Fuel tank location

I recently upgraded from a Honda BF9.9 to a Honda BF20 on my Lund WC 14. I haven't had a chance to use it yet. I also upgraded from a 3 gallon fuel tank to a 6 gallon tank. I felt the 3 gallon size was somewhat restrictive. Anyway, I would like to locate the fuel tank just in front of the middle seat to improve weight distribution. This would put it about 7 ft. from the motor. The hose would be run along the floor of the boat, not up and over the seat. The owner's manual says the tank should be within 6 ft of the motor. Its hard for me to believe that 1 more foot would make a difference, but I'm no expert. Anyone tried this or have an opinion on it? Thanks.
