The dealer asked that I reset the average on a trip home one night and see what it says, which I did. It seems on a 60 mph highway it goes up to 42-43 mpg. If I get on the interstate and set the cruise for 75, the flower petals on the eco flower for speed start falling off and the MPG start dropping to around 36 - 38. I would think that a 6 speed could compensate for 75, but I'll take this reading over the previous one. I still haven't cracked 1k miles yet so I believe it'll work itself out over time. I'll be doing a manual calculation soon to see how it matches up.
