Im looking for an opinion on best gas mileage used truck or van. I am looking to buy a used van or truck to transport my 300 lbs of floor buffing equipment. I do ALOT of highway traveling 700 miles per week. I currently get 15 miles per gallon in my gmc 1500 pickup.

Is it possible to get 30 mpg on the highway with a smaller pickup like a ranger or a astrovan? Also in your opinion which make and model would get the best mileage?
With that much equipment you will be lucky to get 24 to 26 the most and that would be a Nissan pick up or a Honda or Nissan SUV have you looked into either ?
