Depends on your mpg, no?
Really, I can only speak for here (Mexico)--as long as you are on the main roads, Pemex stations are not far apart at all--80 or 100 miles of fuel capacity is usually plenty. If you expect a long stretch of no gas, carry an extra gallon or so in a plastic container--much cheaper than a new tank.
Central America may well be different.
Also different is if you plan to spend lots of miles off of the main (=paved) roads--your fuel consumption will be MUCH worse.
