Around 24 ounces should be enough.

16 oz in a 3d plane....i use 16 oz in all my 50cc size 3d planes and can comfortable fly for 10 minutes easy...but then again im not always running WOT....if it was a warbird, where they usually fly wot the whole flight then 24 oz

Typos? You say 16, then 26, then 24?

I understand the last 24 as being for warbirds or probably any other plane that operates at high throttle settings, but your first line doesn't make sense.

yup i made a typo.... 16 oz for 3D style flying or 24 for wide open throttle flying style

Back in the day i used to go by glow fuel tank size ranges, but glow engines seem to burn fuel a lot faster so there's no relation to how a gasser burns fuel.... For example in my 50cc aerobats... i used to use a 24 ounce tanks, and would only use less than half a tank....well i i now use a 20 oz tank and still have about 1/2 a tank left after i land..IMO theres no need to carry the extra fuel/weight if not necessary, and now i spend less time fueling/draining my tanks

I became out of gaz many time w my 16oz on my da60 at 8 minutes of flying time.
I put a 24oz now and I fly whitout stressing about runing out of fuel at least 10 11 minutes

I think MetallicaJunkie made a very good point, flying type is the main factor. I have a plane that does double duty, IMAC and 3D. When I fly 3D 18 minute flights are possible. When I fly IMAC 10 minutes at most. Same plane same fuel tank, just different throttle management.
