Default Zeoah G26, Fuel consumption?

I just got a G26 to put into my Phaeton 90.

I haven't done it yet but has anyone done a timed test to see how long it will run at high speed to determine how many ounces per minute?

I figured that if I knew the maximum time I have on a certain size tank then when normal flying i'd know when to come down.

I'd like to get 20 to 25 min on a flight.

I'm thinking about a 24 oz tank?

Any problems with running the Zenoah G26 for that long?

Thanks for the help,

I'm running a G26 in a 1/4 scale Nieuport with a 14 oz. tank and a 18x6 master airscrew wood prop. It takes 52 cranks of my pump to fill the tank. I average 6 minute flights at full throttle and it takes 40 cranks to empty the tank. So, that looks like approximately 24 minutes on 14 oz. Of course, you will be using a different prop and RPM so this is just a starting point. No heating problem.
