Thumbs up Aprox. Gas Mileage on 2007 FZ6?

My FZ has been modified and the speedo was switched out for an aftermarket one, which doesn't have a low fuel light . I'm about to go on my first longer ride with it and I don't want to be caught pushing my bike 10km on a highway. I've only been up and down the street on the bike so far.

If you guys could be kind enough to let me know what you've experienced; I can set my TRIP based on the average of responses

Heres a picture of the bike if anyone is curious:

I dont like to push my bike past 160 miles (255 km), but I am very conservative about how far I go, and I live out in the desert, where its at least 30 miles between towns. I get slightly over 50 mpg (80 km) per US gallon (3.8l) averaging probably around 70 mph (112 kph), almost exclusively highway miles.

Not sure how much of the 4 gallon tank this bike has is the air space I cant fill due to the filler device, so I dont ever think I have the full 4 gallons to use. I also have a puig windscreen and front body like in the pic, not sure how much difference this makes.

hope this helped.

btw, last fill up, 165 miles, 3.2 gallons US.
