If your feeler gauges are not bent at the end and you check the clearance with one feeler gauge, you will get a smaller figure than with two because the feeler gauges need to flex to get into the gap and the single gauge flexes less than 2.

So if you used just one gauge in the past, the reading with 2 gauges will appear looser, but its actually operator error ;)
