Just depends how your lake access is.

For folks like me who usually stop by the dock after ever hour or two, I seldom add more than about 10 gallons total to the tank, and that is only if I know we have 3-4 skiers in the boat, and beautiful conditions with no one waiting at home.

Otherwise I usually have 5 or 6 in when we leave the dock, and about 2-3 when we get back. Then I add another 5'er and go out again.

Folks who trailer to a lake/river and then go out all day tend to fuel the boat at a pump, and top it up.

Since I'm going off cans, I will seldom put multiple cans in the tank at a time, as mentioned, adds weight to the back, isn't great for the wakes.
