How long can you run on a tank?

My 89 PS goes about 4-5 hours of hard running before tank needs a refill, and doesn't like less than 1/4 full. How about others?

I usually put in about 11ish and run it pretty hard pulling wakeboarders, skiers, and a tube until around 7ish. Usually have about 1/8 tank left when I pull it out of the water..

I get 4 to 5 hours out of a tank on my '82 Stars and Stripes but, I have a big Holley on a big block Chev. There have been day trips that I've burned a tank and most of a second tank by day's end.

As far as I want to push it is about 5 hours.

A few Friday's ago, we had 6 guys riding, all took 2 sets, and two of us surfed on the way back to the ramp. Boat took a little more than 30 gal. We were running a pretty good amount of weight too.

I generally only fill up about 3-4 times per summer. Generally get 10-15 hours out of a tank. I wish I could say that mine gets used mostly for skiing/boarding, but with kids ages 4 and 1, most of our time is spent beached on one of the islands.
