Adjusting lead footed cruise control ?
I've notice when driving my manual EF futura on the highway with cruise control on it seems really lead footed when it comes to a grade. You'll be going along minding your own business and come to a slight incline (which the car will easily amble up) when the accelerator suddenly dissappears from beneath your foot. I've been playing with the dash diagnostics mode and the instant fuel consumption takes a massive hike during these manouvers (as does it when ever you put your foot down)
Anyway, is there any way to adjust how quickly it accelerates ? I only use it on the highway* and am not too worried about it strictly maintaining the set speed. I'm more concerned with fuel consumption with petrol prices at the moment!
*apart from things like when I first got the car and set it to 90, then went back to 50ks in 2nd and hit resume :s6:
