So here's the summary of the above:
Some info is correct
Some info is partially correct
Some info is not correct but . . . .
Given that the OP asked about the range on his fuel tank and distilling all of the above info down, the range cannot be determined other than by experience and record keeping.
Because if you know you consumption at 73.663 % RPM because you think that's the optimum throttle setting and you've found a way to use a jug and a flow meter successfully, you still have wind, current, tide, chop, air temperature, all variable and all of them will affect your RANGE positively or negatively.
Range and fuel consumption are two different concepts.
So start recording your engine hours, trip distances (not from your paddle wheel log) and fuel used and build up your own record of what you range is likely to be under given conditions.
