I have no need for four seats. With full fuel and my wife's and my weight up front, we still have a nice margin for luggage if we want to take a trip. And unless we are going cross country there is no need for full fuel in these airplanes.

It burns about eight gallons an hour and holds 50 gallons max. Fill it to the tabs for 38 gallons, which is more than enough for most flights.

Fortunately there are nifty apps for weight and balance that make it easy and take away any excuse for doing one before flight.
