Today I had two successful flights (with the fuel tanks now correctly plumbed). The first flight was for 5 minutes and I'm guessing I used about 9 ounces. This is with the engine running rich as I am...

I would not base your flight time on my first and only flight. As I mentioned, I had the tanks plumbed incorrectly and I was running rich. I will be able to provide better data once I get more...

I have had only 1 flight with the Saito (running rich) but based on that one flight my guess would be no. My guess is you would get 4 minutes max!

My next stumbling block with installing the FG90 radial is with the gas tank. There is not enough room with Carburetor sticking in the fuselage so far. What did others do to relieve this problem?

Your plane looks great. Can you share some close up shots? Maybe even mention some of your modifications.
I just started a Ziroli build, and have many decisions to make still.
