M750 optimum riding style.

Has anyone out there worked out the optimum riding style to maximise fuel economy from an M750. The reason I ask is because I ran a full to fill light test on mine, using low revs / high gear girly riding and apart from stretching the chain with snatch I achieved 144 miles. having done that test I'm now playing a bit more and have somehow increased my range to 165 miles per tank. Any ideas ?

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.
