Just wondering guys, how much does it effect mileage at highway speeds?

I'm trying to figure out if its the A/C that lowered my mileage or the Native Gas station, I'm guessing its the crap diesel fuel but wanted to check.

I was getting 850km/tank basically average, it dropped to 750 and I was doing more hwy but faster highway. Tires are high 40s psi forget what.

I've never really seen much mpg difference with A/C on or off.

I'd suspect crap diesel or "Faster highway"

MPG is very sensitive to speed. I get my best MPG by keeping the RPM's around 1800 and see a marked drop off over 2000.

I'm guessing it's a speed issue as I'm on the highway right now 110 km/h at around 1800 but I normally do 2000 at about 118Km/h
