running but there was gas in the lines and fuel filter. To empty out the
gas line , I had to keep on trying to restart the bike engine. This was on
road with no hills.

Hmmm... To me that's not very good. I never checked mine that perfectly, but I "roughly" average closer to 100.

I think a huge part of the difference is how fast we run the engines.

I tend to just putt along at half throttle or less, around 18-20 mph.
