I'd rather talk about something like foot placement and stance while pumping, pump design, or my wrists.

You definitely should put both heels down on the wrists throughout the pumping cycle.

Less is best.

Inverse relationship between percentage body weight change and finishing time in 643 forty-two-kilometre marathon runners

Objective The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between athletic performance and the change in body weight (BW) during a 42 km marathon in a large cohort of runners.

Methods The study took place during the 2009 Mont Saint-Michel Marathon (France). 643 marathon finishers (560 males and 83 females) were studied. The change in BW during the race was calculated from measurements of each runner's BW immediately before and after the race.

Results BW loss was 2.3±2.2% (mean±SEM) (p<0.01). BW loss was −3.1±1.9% for runners finishing the marathon in less than 3 h; −2.5±2.1% for runners finishing between 3 and 4 h; and −1.8±2.4% for runners who required more than 4 h to complete the marathon. The degree of BW loss was linearly related to 42 km race finishing time (p<0.0000001). Neither age nor gender influenced BW loss during the race.

Conclusions BW loss during the marathon was inversely related to race finishing time in 643 marathon runners and was >3% in runners completing the race in less than 3 h. These data are not compatible with laboratory-derived data suggesting that BW loss greater than 2% during exercise impairs athletic performance. They match an extensive body of evidence showing that the most successful athletes in marathon and ultra-marathon running and triathlon events are frequently those who lose substantially more than 3–4% BW during competition.

I'm expecting to go through something similar! I'll be running a 3 litre camel back, but only about half full per peakfuel stop - planning on having 4 stops for my first time in the solo.

If you mastered the Todd Carney bubbler you could get anyway with just drinking a lot before you started.

No bottles for me, there is a lake half way round that I stop at for a sip.
