How long do you use a spray tip before replacing it?
How many gallons?

Determining a number of gallons before replacement does not work. We may use a thinner product, or spray at higher (or lower) pressures. All of these have an effect on the longevity of the spray tip. Your best tool is the pattern that the tip gives you. When it no longer provides the correct spray pattern, it's time to replace it.
It's funny you say that. The last big job we did (commercial exterior) it seemed we went through tips fast.
