Other than that, you just have to do a measurement -- ie: do a 20-mile loop, measure how much gas it takes to fill it up.

FYI-Before the ride I filled it completely to the top and went right to the station and filled it up on the way home. 1.5 gallons brought it back to the top.

My first thought is the float level is too high, causing gas to spill out the over flow tube. You can lose a lot of gas this way.
Second, I'd make sure jetting is spot on.
But, here's the real answer. If you want to increase your mileage dramatically, and also improve overall performance and ride-ability, get the head shaved. This is such a no-brainer mod and makes such a huge difference, especially if you are riding at altitude. This will also make jetting a lot easier. Guaranteed best $50 you ever spent on a motorcycle in your life.
On my '08 300 XC, I routinely get 40+ mpg trail riding. That's mile per gallon, not miles per tank. That's not at race pace. At race pace, I'd expect a 30% +/- drop. But, this is still way better than 33 miles to reserve, yikes!
