Running them in series will give you 4 times the surge impedance hence the
system will tune with one quarter the tank capacitance (and require twice
the supply voltage) compared to a parallel connection. So one or the other
might be preferable depending on the voltage/amperage of your power supply,
resonant frequency, and type of caps you have available.
