Based on my personal experience my tank average speeds are about 37 MPH to 40 MPH, unless I take a trip and there is no local driving. If traffic backs up behind me then I speed up, even if it means over the limit. It's a compromise to me. I could probably get 150 MPG on my bike if I wanted to EOC and average 20 MPH but that is just not going to happen unless it's in a controlled situation with some financial benefit to me. I can be among the top ten for fuel consumption (low) on my bike and still cover 20 miles and 23 traffic lights in 35 minutes or less.

The highest concentration of traffic lights in my local route, require an average speed OVER the 45 limit to avoid most (90+%) of them, so I average right at 48 MPH pn that stretch of road.
