Man, how do you get that on the highway? I typically average close to 6.0 - I set the eco cruise control (it's not adaptive) to the posted speed limit and don't blast the A/C too much and never use heating if I can help it. Still can't go below 5.7. ... <snip>
Adaptive cruise wasn't available or you didn't opt for it on the car? I cannot figure out how in the heck I ever drove without the adaptive part. Just highway cruising, I set it to 4 seconds gap and forget it ... knowing it'll kick off at 25 or so if it gets that low.
I agree on holding to posted limits for the most part. Depending on the roads I might go to +5 MPH over limit but that's about it. Agree on the A/C. When we had the hot spell here (that never seemed to end) I'd use A/C to cool interior with the cooled seats on, then shut off the cabin air. Worked quite nicely if you have the cooled seat option.
