One little thing I did that might help in the future (or might help others before it happens) is that with the tank as empty as possible, I poured in 5 gallons, marked the fuel gauge with a sharpie, poured in five more, marked it with a sharpie, and repeated until just about full.
By looking at the fuel gauge, I now know, for a fact, how much it can take without over filling.
I also know how much is left in the tank for planning purposes.
This tip came from my friend Mike when we were setting up our boat from two boats ago.
