Some good Banff fuel millage

Alberta bound started Wednesday morning, I jumped into my truck and left at 9am from Abbotsford.  I filled up with diesel the night before at 82.5  cents a litre and took about 116 litres.(I think my bill was 90 bucks, don’t remember …)  I drive a 2003 gmc 2500HD longbox with a Duramax 6.6 diesel engine, with a performance chip from Edge Products, and a tank that takes 120 litres.

My first stop was Banff, roughly an 8 hour drive with a total of 776kms (google maps).  Generally in the city I get about that in one tank.  I ended up getting into town at 5pm my time with a half a tank left .  So I figure about 50-60 bucks…go figure.  One of the big reasons why my millage was so good was that I used cruise control for about 70-80 percent of the drive.  I have heard that it makes a big difference in millage, more consistency in acceleration and less revving.  So I guess thats my tip for the day, use cruise.
