concentrate more on riding and less on numbers... ;-)
over time the differences in the amount of fuel you put in the tank will be accounted for and be reflected more accurately in the average mileage... as long as you're pretty much filling up the same way each time...

don't reserves vary from model to model?? besides, if your reserve is half a gallon and you know the mpg of your bike, it wouldn't be hard to figure out - half your mpg...
i have a gas gauge but i don't rely on it. i use the trip odometer. i have a determined number of miles i'll go on a tank. i don't know how many miles i can actually go because i don't want to run the tank out just to find out (and i don't have a reserve).
depending on where i am, i'll determine how soon to start looking for a station... in the city, i'll go closer to my predetermined number of miles. when i'm in the country and in unknown territory, i'll obviously be a bit more prudent and fill up earlier... pretty much just using common sense...
am i missing something?? is there an advantage to squeezing every last mile out of a tank??
