I think the minimum would be 100 gal for anything over 23ft. Some of these 40+ with under 200gal, how do you do that? You need to figure 1 mpg average. The 200 gals I had in the Donzi was perfect for most trips, I rarely filled it though since 200 gal at about 5lbs per gal means a lot of dead weigh and when I trailered it to the UP I would time it so I went with no fuel and came home with no fuel, that could save almost 1000 lbs of weight.
