Uh-huh, My PD returned 28 mpg during the Dead Horse Bean Run this past October. We were running up and down the hollers of Pennsyltuckey like a bunch of butt shot turkeys and I was glad to have that 9 gallon super tanker
between my legs.
Gonna rebuild the carbs this winter if it gets cold enough to stop riding.

My old 94' airhead GS used to return somewhere in the mid 50's per (Imperial) Gallon or 4.54 litres. Best was 223 miles on 20 litres when I hit reserve, 200 plus was common before reserve.

Sounds like the mixture is a bit too rich. Small changes in the mixture make a BIG impact on an airhead's consumption.
Back in YVR after riding around the world for 2 years.
