Gravity feed guns will use less paint because like you said you can run your gun dry. You dont have any extra like the siphon feed. Tip size makes a difference depending on what your spraying. The smaller the tip the more the paint will be atomized by the gun. This helps reduce your orange peel. Use to big of a tip and the paint will come out in bigger droplets leaving you with to much build and a more orange peel look. I found 1.5 works good for basecoats and sealers and 1.3 for clear. If you dont want to use two guns, some companies make a 1.4 that would work well for an all around gun.
