How do you find them when lightly filled or running low guys? (as you can guess I've never used mine!) do they work ok with say 5 litres or less in or do you get this 'sitting at the bottom'?

Our orange ones (22l plastimo) run down to about 0.5 to 1 litre before giving out. Pacer Marine had some orange ones last time I was in.

When they are in the Y, the pickup is at the lowest point so will draw until pretty much empty.

Filling them out of the boat is a nightmare.
