Tons of. But you need to do the conversion calculation on your own.
From the experience of our (big) forum riders you can go twisty roads with fun starting at around 3l/100km with the manual clutch version. For regular use of all kinds you will average in between 3l/100km and 4l/100km. With DCT I have an average of 3,6l/100km. Even at a ride where I did more than 40km of full throttle riding (GPS spd up to 182km/h) it stayed below 4l/100km for that tank fill up.

Racetrack riders report, it would stay under 6l/100km for absolut full throttle riding.
Several tests confirmed, it will take 4.3l/100km when riding at 130km/h constantly.

These values are quite realistic. So, for commuting at 80km/h-100km/h the manual clutch version will stay a little over 3l/100km, max. 3.5l/100km, depending on riding style, road characteristics and traffic circumstances. The DCT will take slightly more, but not a lot.
