I'd say 320km which would be right about 200 miles. I've gone 440km on a 
tank a few times, but only on the slow curvy roads in Norway. :-) I 
haven't actually run out of gas yet (in 11 years), but I've had a few 
close shaves.

IIRC, the reserve is 5 liters, ie a gallon and a quart. The tank takes 
22 liters in total.
