Well,I'm guessing over 1100 shots out of that tank.5 pods should be enough but it's up to you how much you shoot.

set up a 3v3, you the only back man. fill and top off your tank so its all the way full. count every ball as you fill your hopper and pods and just let loose for a game.

then always stick with that, for that "just in case" game that always comes up at the most inopportune moment.

That should be about right. In 3-man, it happens very fast. Plan first hopper/pod by first bunker. Probably less than a pod for every 30 seconds, so you should be fine. However, like the others said, playing is the only way to really tell.

Aren't your 5 man games about twice as long as your 3 man games?

5 might work, but I'd carry 7 (at least) to be sure.

i carry wats in my hopper, and 3 more wdp fatboy tubes. i have a dye matrix with anderson board and i do alot of shooting, games shouldnt last longer than that, if they do, learn how to aim a little better

It depends on style, I don't use more than a pod per person typically. My friend will use 1 1/2 pods a person typically. Like they said though, best thing is load up on air and paint and see what your gas mileage and paint useage is.
Give yourself a deviance though, 3v1 does happen and you can win.
