I rode across country with no gas gauge. Just watch the miles go by. That way, even once you're familiar with the bike and trust the gauge, you have a good understanding of what "feels" right. Rough ranges are 100 miles for a 3 gallon, 125 miles for a 4 gallon tank. Hit that number, look for gas. Ride like a hooligan or in city traffic, maybe a bit sooner. Highway cruising, maybe a bit more.
