You would need a petock with a second outlet or add a "T" into the single line.
I can't say that there is absolutely no benefit to adding another fuel line, but I also can't see one that is obvious.
I used to hang around Harley guys a lot and to those who felt the need to shell out in excess of $100.- for a hi-flo Pingle petcock I always told this:
Fill your tank up fully. Disconnect the fuel line to the carb and route it into a large gasoline can.
Open the petcock and start a stop-watch.
Take the time it takes for the tank to drain completely- 20, maybe 25 minutes?
If your motor is capable of emptying the tank that fast, you need a high flow petcock.
