We want to conserve floating IP addresses. So it's a pain that every tenant router is uses one IP from the IP pool as a gateway IP address. Is it possible avoid this?

I'm happy to explain more if you need,

by design, and to allow source nat traffic (instances who don't have floating ip can make traffic outside your tenant), neutron router must have a floating ip...

but if you want, as a work around, you could change your tenants design, for example to use a private ip on VLAN, and then add a new subnet for the same network.

have a look at (you could change the /30 subnet with a /24 subnet for example):
