→ When the fuel drops to reserve level, note down the odometer reading of your bike. For doing this, you should first turn fuel valve from On to Reserve. Note down the first reading.
→ Run your bike for few kilometres.

→ Now you can find the mileage of your bike by dividing the distance travelled by total number of fuel you have filled.
Formula
Bike Mileage = (Second Reading - First Reading) /No. of litres of petrol filled

Step 1: Consider that your motorbike has reached the reserve level and the odometer reading shows as 5530 miles. Run your vehicle for few more kilometres and refill your fuel tank, say 2 litres. Now note down the odometer reading when your fuel drops to reserve level again. Lets consider the reading as 5650 miles.

Fuel volume in litres - 2 Litre

Step 2: Substitute the given values in the formula.
Bike Mileage = (Second Reading - First Reading) /No. of litres of petrol filled
= (5650 - 5530)/2 lit

= 120km /2 lit

=60km/lit

The average miles travelled by your motorbike is 60km/lit
