Frank,
I do not have my notes handy but I believe that I was getting about 2:15 on 3/4 of an ounce running in fast mode.

Frank,
A 2.25 OZ tank should do it. So you buy a 2.5 try it out and then short fill it or take the tank apart and resize it when you have the amount locked in.

Frank,
I had to check some figures that i had for fuel consumption and I found that 2 to 2.2 oz is about right. I had fuel consumption for an OS20FP and with a 9/5 and PM10/22 i was getting 6 min on a 2 oz tank but that days temp was cool with a favotrable humidity.Still I'd err on a slightly bigger tank so you have a little fudge time if you have to reset a NV or something.
