I'm not sure if this has been covered before but tires make a big differnce for my 950 Adv S.

When running Conti Trail Attack I get to around 320-330 km before low fuel light (that's my check point) but with more dirtoriented tires, MT21 in this case, I drop down to 250-270km before low fuel light.

I guess that a fast calc that gives approx. from 42mpg () to 33mpg (). In european sense that is from 5,6 l/100km to 7,2 l/100km.

This has been calculated over several highway miles in both cases and are very persitent.

'05 950 Adv S - 73000km
'14 Beta RR 350 - 15h
'14 Beta RR 350 - 2h (Stolen)
'09 250 EXC-F SixDays - 184h (Stolen)
'98 XL600V Transalp - 86000km - SOLD
