I routinely get between 46 and 52 mpg. Like KM stated, if I let the rpm's stay higher than about 5000, I suck up the gas much quicker. And as Cindy stated, you can't trust the gas gauge too much. That's why there's a reserve setting on the fuel selector (petcock), to give you some warning that it's time to get gas ASAP.

The best gas mileage I've ever got with my 750 was when I was riding two up, with my wife on the back, straight highway riding going about 55 mph the whole way. Got 55 mpg and was way happy!
