Re: Cruise Control or Right Foot Control??
i have drove from michigan, to n.dakota, to new york and my truck has never down shifted.. our trucks are actually working harder to maintain a set speed going up and down the hills so if you can let your truck gain a few mph goin down hill and slowly back off the pedal rite befor it wants to downshift goin up hill it will save the fuel..unless its a steep hill. when on cruise control when you go up it probably sarts slowing down way to fast for the truck to compinsate for it then it has to mash it to the floor to catch back up thus using more fuel to get back up to speed... try that ive been doing that since i first started to drive.... you just driveing or you pulling something too? that might change the downshifting on cruise control but do what i said even while hauling and it will make a big diff.
