Default Fuel line and regulator question

So i had a question on the routing of the feed return and regulator. I have it now going to one rail then across to the other then out to the regulator and to the return. Feed is 8an and return is 6an. So just wondering which is the best way to go and if i had this right or wrong. I took some pictures and made a diagram let me know which is right. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

This is the way i have it now

First way is better. Keep the regulator after the rails.. I have my feed going into the frt pass side rail, crossover in back & regulator mounted to frt driverside rail, then return.

Really just an aesthetic preference.. You could just swap sides if you're feed isn't long enough.. Feed driverside frt, move crossover to the back & mount your reg to the pass side rail. That's assuming your existing return line is long enough.

I prefer the first method. That way, you don't subject the rail fitting to the wt and vibration of the reg and lines.
