No gauge. 3.5 gallons is how much fits when the light has just come on. Then after about 120 miles the light comes on again. So i figure about 35 mpg. I rev it a lot in lower gears tho.

I'd say about 100-110 before my light comes on, around 140-150 total.

about 140 miles per tank, 40-45 mpg. It's been a little less since I loaded a different tune in the PC3 but it's noticeably more responsive so I figure it's a good trade.

40-45mpg under normal commuting circumstances. I've gotten as high as 50mpg poking around and as low as 20mpg on the track.

like it has been said it all depends on bike, the rider, AND gearing (sometimes tires, but minuscule) uncorrected gearing, i.e. no speedo healer, will through off the odometer also. example: stock i was getting around 120 til low fuel light came on. 1 down and stock rear it changed a little but not much. now that i have stock front and +3 rear (long story) its getting to 140 before the light comes on, and i can almost promise its not getting better milage cuz of the change
