Run the tank down to a 1/4 or less every day we go out. And at $75 I'll gladly keep one on board as a spare just in case...all that's needed to change are an alan wrench, a phillips screw driver, and a fuel line tool and it shouldn't take more than 45 mins to do it all.
No we shouldn't have to worry about it and it would be nice if we didn't. Did your fuel pump quit on you? I use half a tank as a big safety measure but most of what I've read is a 1/4 is fine too. My issue with that is I just don't trust the gauge that much.
You are right about lake prices and I wont pay them.
