Question 04-07 chevy crew cab w/diesel

I am looking at getting an 04-07 chevy 3/4 ton HD 4 wheel drive with the 6.6 L diesel with 3.73 gears. Does anyone know what kind of mileage these trucks can get hwy? Most of my driving is on interstate. Thanks for any assistance! Primed67

I'm getting 17+ running around town loaded with work gear. (500/600 lbs always in the bed)
Allways seem to be pulling something whenever I run a full tank on the highway so I can't say there.
You'll only be turning around 2K @ 70 mph.

FYI, all Duramax trucks have 3:73's.
