keep the rpm's below 3k, always try to keep the T/C locked.
Turn Over Drive off during acceleration to lock the T/C in 3rd, then turn it back on when i reach close to my speed.
I try and keep my MPG bar at 4 or more bars.
I speed up down hills and gently slow down going up hills. Basically use gravity in my favor.

Yea never speed up going up hill, just maintain your speed. Speed up on flat ground or going down hill.
