Two Questions about the F800GS

I like the look and idea of thes bikes. Right now I have a DL1000 and a DR650. I ask way less of eihter of these bikes than they are capable of. The DL I use strictly as a road bike and most of that time it is for comuting or two-up riding on the highway. The DR is for exploring dirt roads that turn into trails. It stopps just shy of single track. I would never dream of taking the DL the places that I take the DR.

Based on that short blurb, I am prepared to ask my first question: Do those of you who own the F800GS think that one of those could replace BOTH of my bikes?

Secondly: I can;t find a reliable figure on capacity, octain requerment or range on a tank of gas. Can you guys tell me what you have found?
