In my case, there will be no offroad riding, mostly backroads, perhaps a mountain pass or 20 [Transfagaien in Romania ].

I average about 4.5L/100Km (a theoretical 450Km to fumes) at a steady 110Km/h on 95RON on road.

So if you need to you can get pretty good range. The last time I did a run with a mix of gravel roads, track and B roads I averaged about 5.5L/100.
