Don't run a feeder often, but do have a 55 gal feeder and added the funnel because there is so much feed that just sets on the bottom unable to go out the spout.
It's for sure worth it. Regardless of the size of the container, physics determines that a lot of the feed sits in the bottom as @Sodbuster pointed out.
