Like said above slower = better mpg. ~50-60mph is optimum for fuel economy. ~60-70 is still good. Once you get over 70mph it really starts to drop off. By 80mph it's usually poor economy.

Much depends on conditions though. I have done ~22/23mpg avg on the highway at 65mph unloaded on a couple hundred mile trip on flat land and also done 20mpg avg on the highway at 75mph with over 1,000lb in the truck, through mountains, in 105-110 deg F heat on a 2,600 mile trip.
