I would agree that a 3 gallon tank would be more than large enough. We currently have a 6 gallon tank for the 8hp 2-stroke Johnson on our P26, and we don't burn much more than a gallon each trip. Each trip consists of maybe an hour total of motoring at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle... maybe a bit less time.. who knows.

If I can hijack this thread slightly, I would have room in our engine well for a small three gallon tank if it could be oriented VERTICALLY. Is there such a thing? These new plastic tanks take up a lot of real-estate unnecessarily when they're horizontal.
