Re: how big a tank do i need
It really depends upon how much yoou intend to run. If you are only going 3 miles or so, and some few hours of trolling, then 3 gal will do it.
Actually I have 2- 31/2 gallon ones. I seldom use more than 3 gallons runnng for 25+ miles on one tank, on my Merc 5 hp 2-stroke. But on long run days the second tank is piece of mind. I usually keep the second one with about 2 gal in it to limit weight.
Two small ones lets you use a single tank for short run days, and takes less room with that one small tank.
