It all depends how you tune and maintain your engine. If you don't break it in properly you may also shorten the life span of the motor. I saw a mach 26 get so hot that it cooked the front bearing allowing air to enter the crank case also causing to it run lean. There are many variables when it comes to nitro engines.
Just remember to follow the break in procedures described in the manual. Then tune your motor to performance not to temperature. If it runs well blows a lot of smoke your good to go. I had an O.S RG 21 with 7 gallon through it a still runs awsome my buddy uses it in his buggy. He has about a gallon through it. I also currently run a O.S v-spec 21 with about 3.5 gallons on it, tons of compression runs amazing tons of power I've hurd of people destroying the rear bearing but that's cause they got dirt in the engine.

Hey, my hyper .21 8 port was a tank. I dont have a percise number because I stopped counting at 10 gallons (I bought my engine used with 4 or 5 he said...) and I didnt take care of my engine at all. I am taking care of my new one lol
