One trick I use is to release the cruise control when approaching an overpass and not re-engaging until back on relatively flat road. I use the "RES" button to release & re-engage the CC.

Like D&MAKAFUN, I'm set in the low 60s and I've got an overall average of about 7.5 (with and w/o gen).
McGarrett50, You made a good point with your "trick". I had become lazy and just let the CC work with the computer to keep me at speed. Yesterday on our way to Lincoln NE, I used your method, maintained my speed within 4-5 mph of my cruising speed and never once had the tranny shift so low that the "roar" came in. Thanks
