Open question...
Tire size?
Gear ratio?
Condition of engine?
Speed expected to drive?
A solid motor with the proper drivetrain driven SLOWLY should hit close to 20MPG plus or minus.

Mine is a 1955 model with 53,000 miles on it. A new Solex carb, the rest of the drive train is all original. Except I've got 31" Uniroyal Liberator A/T's.

I get somewhere around 9-11mpg. So figure around 70-90 miles into a trail. And that would be running moderately in high range. Half that in 4 Low.

Now you see why everyone mounts a Jerry can on the back.
