Sealing driveway - materials?

I'm going to be sealing my 1yr old driveway.

Questions:
Oil based vs. water based? Which will last longer? Benefits/Cons or Oil based vs. water based

Never been sealed, will 5 gal cover 750SF?

How much is a 5 gal container? I've been quoted $250 before to do my driveway in the past.

What are your lessons learned to ensure a good job, i.e. prep work. I plan on sweeping off driveway first and will seal coat when we are expecting a 48 "no-rain" window.

Thanks
Rob

I figured that driveway sealing would be a good way for grounds professionals to fill-in otherwise slow, in some cases, Monday's and Tuesday's. Therefore, was expecting lots of responses.

Does anyone know of another board which may have these answers.

Thanks
