MPG on cruise control?
Does anyone else get significantly better mileage using cruise control? Normally, if I take it as easily as possible, I'll get around 340 miles on a full tank.
Now I know the DTE computer isn't going to be totally accurate, but I filled the tank yesterday and then did 150 miles, at about 60mph, all on cruise. And my DTE readout is still 276 miles! The fuel gauge seems to back that up, as well.
Anyone else notice big differences between grannying it without cruise, and doing the same mileage at the same speed with cruise turned on? It's a fairly big deal - at the minute (I'm in the UK) it costs me $200 to fill up from empty!
Oh - 1998 4.0 engined Orvis with the tow package, presume the gearing affects things.
