Well no, not really.
The reason I say this is that I seem to get the same mileage out of a tankful (roughly 150 miles til the light comes on) irrespective of how I ride it.
This first came to my notice after the 2011 ukmoc trackday at Mallory, when I found that even after a full day of "performance" riding I got pretty much the same fuel economy as if I'd been on a normal run.
I get roughly the same mileage whether running solo on the twisties or on the motorway with luggage and/or pillion.
