To say ‘as much as possible’ or ‘as much as you can’ in Japanese we take the standard potential form of the verb (usually the verb ‘to do’) and add だけ.

I want you to come as quickly as possible.
Gather as much information as possible about tourist spots in Tokyo.

We can form this phrase using the potential form of verbs other than ‘to do’:

Be environmentally conscious and use energy as efficiently as possible.
It seems he drank as much as possible at yesterday’s drinks so today he can’t come because of a hangover.
