I've been getting about 80 miles when I hit the reserve. Been doing 7mi each trip to work with traffic on local roads. On highway, i get about 45mpg.

That's terrable mileage.
you need to tell us the history of the bike.
Model / year.
Is it stock.
There are many answers we can give you but without that info it won't help.

Did you get a good idea of mileage rsnellman or do i need to add something






I was just wondering how many miles should I expect out of a full tank of gas from my new VTX1300. I guess I am asking an average. Probably mostly highway travel. Thanks.

I found out the hard way that I can get 190.7 miles, including the reserve tank. I have to switch to reserve at 160.7 miles.

140 - 160 is normal range for Main tank volume..
When my VTX was fairly new, on Interstate flameout on Main tank at 125 miles.
When I switch to Reserve, I say 40 miles, 10 miles per quart.
