I own and fly a 421, have a couple thousand hours in type, and can categorically state that it flies beautifully on one engine. Furthermore, the “complicated” fuel system on tuna tank models is, in my opinion, intuitively obvious and nearly impossible to screw up with a modicum of attention.

Though my experience is C310 & C340, my opinion is the same. A great fuel system if you take the time to understand it, and use it as intended. But, like any airplane, no matter what, you have to maintain flying speed!
