2 litres should do it.

2 litres sounds about right.
Do you do your dishes in hot water? Or do you like to sit around and drink a lot of tea/coffee?
Then add a touch more fuel.

In the summer we would use somewhat less than 2 litres but in the early spring or fall we would take a little more than that.

We used about 1.3l on a 10 day trip conserving.

I to concur with the 2 L estimate, but I generally come home with most of one liter, as I try to conserve along the way to make sure I will have fuel by having my water ready when I light the stove, and always covering the pot when boiling water.

If you are using the whisperlite, the heat shields make a big difference in reducing boil times especially in windy conditions. Also proper maintainence and cleaning and will make the burner more efficient.
