Absolutely use the Lizard truck! (Or the Golf Cart?)
Cruse control 3, with a rubber band. (as used in Darth Chimps post)

I did testing on over a dozen of the vehicles.
Here are a few stats with some (fairly rough but indicative) number crunching

Case IH Steiger 600
Fuel capacity: 1722 liters,
Constant speed: 26mph,
Liters per mile: 28L,
Total Range: 61.5 Miles,
Total driving time: 2.37 hours,

Case IH Magnum
Fuel capacity: 635 liters,
Constant speed: 27mph,
Liters per mile: 10L
Total Range: 63.5 Miles
Total driving time: 2.35 hours

As you can see the magnum gets almost identical range for the same amount of driving time, but uses only 635L of fuel, instead of 1722L. This means you have a much smaller digital carbon footprint! (and also it takes much less time to refuel).

Lizard Truck
Fuel capacity: 990 liters,
Constant speed: 34mph,
Liters per mile: 13L
Total Range: 76.15 Miles
Total driving time: 2.24 hours

The Lizard truck will get an extra 13 miles per tank over the others, and does it around 6 minutes faster. Nothing else came close to the Lizard truck, anything that had the same run time had much less miles driven.

I also would not bother refueling the vehicle, if you buy the truck just drive it where it spawns at the dealership, there is plenty of space. When it runs out of fuel just press "Y" to open the shop and go to your "owned vehicles" page, sell the truck, and if you don't change to another tab it will still be in your owned vehicles section but says you own 0. Just by it again. This is much faster than refueling any of the vehicles.

Terrin has pointed out in the comments that the golf cart didn't run out of fuel after trying on multiple saves. It drives at only around 16mph, but can be left going overnight or as long as it takes to get the achievement.

I'm not able to check this myself, but if it works is a great tip.
Thanks to Terrin.
