Fuel Saving Tips
Cruise is great, but when it will be less efficient with hills. The reason being, it doesn't know what's in the future, only the present. It will lag with uphill, and downshift/throttle up to catch you up to speed. Downhill it will downshift and hold you back to maintain that speed. Remember you know the road ahead better than cruise. Uphill, you can accelerate more knowing that you're going to lose the speed, or you can cancel cruise and go up the hill trying not to downshift too much. Downhill, you can cancel cruise and let it coast as much as you can (with auto-manual mode you can switch it over and cruise control won't downshift).
