Note that the main tank is about 18 litres, and the reserve is a whopping 7 litres. I usually get to about 200 miles before reserve, which theoretically means I could get another 70 miles before running dry. That's approximately 50mpg.
I get about 180 on a run... That is giving it large when possible.
I can normally do a days commute into the city, and home on a tank .. about 160miles without touching the reserve. occasionally I have had to switch to reserve about 20 miles from home if its been particularly bad in city traffic.
Keeping to a steady 60-70ish, I have seen 220.
I use 180 as a rule of thumb, with 50 as a reserve
