I use 10 to 15 gal of water a year

Ya, still have 2" of blue windshield washer in the jug from last fall when it started to get cold.

Much depends upon the species and log condition.  If you have pitch buildup on the blade it has to be removed or you will get blade dive, etc.  There is no one size fits all.

And how slow you cut.
