They can fly pretty far Transatlantic. Delta uses them for all but maybe 5 transatlantic routes (Delta is the biggest airline US-Europe). Their longest 767-300ER route is JFK-Istanbul. Their longest European route is ATL-IST (MD-11). The longest route in the Delta network is ATL-NRT (MD-11).

Being 180 minutes ETOPS rated, the 767-300ER could fly nonstop from SFO to NRT with maximum fuel but I'm not sure it could do it with a full load of passengers and/or cargo. The 200ER has a range of over 6000NM with maximum fuel.

THe aircraft's range can be enhanced so that they have the range to fly transpac routes without problem. AA proposed adding additional fuel bladders in the cargo compartments to allow DFW/SJC/SEA-NRT flights before the airline ordered 777s. A private 762, operated by MidEast Jet uses this system. I believe its range nears 9000 miles! Of course this is a highly modified a/c, and is not used for revene pax flights. TWA has also proposed using 767-200s for STL-NRT. Many of AA's 767 routes exceed 5000 miles.

767-300ER's fly a number of routes that are longer than LAX-NRT, such as JFK-Cairo, Paris-Rio, Paris-LAX. Longest one I know of is Milan-SFO at 9570 km, compared to 8772 km for LAX-NRT.
But none of these routes compares with LAX-HKG.

UPS will be flying a 767-34erf from Beijing China to Anchorage Alaska then to Atlanta delivering Panda bears at the end of September. 767's are used quite a bit on trans Pac and trans Atlantic routes like SDF to EDDK.
